I have an ASUS X58Cseries and my problem is I do not know how to set it up to boot from a USB first , I know how to change the boot order so it will boot from a CD but I don't even see USB mentioned. Any information will be appreciated.

@Blackett:
May I invite you to post your findings here also in the future in case you might run into a problem again (which I do not hope for you ofcourse), especially when you find the solution that comes with it.
That way, others who come around here with similar issues may end up on the right track also. ;-)

For everyone who ran into this same problem also:
  • Plug your USB-memory stick into your notebook
  • Reboot your laptop (make sure you plugged the memory stick in first!)
  • Press <Esc> straight after the first screen comes up which will get you into your BIOS
  • You will see the USB stick as one of the boot options
  • Remember: it speaks for itself that it must be a bootable stick  to be able to boot from it

In case you don't see your stick present after following above steps, you might try these
next steps out. Be careful not to mess around with other settings in the BIOS you are not familiar with, but if you just keep to the next steps you are safe:

  • Press <F2> straight after the first screen comes up which will get you into your BIOS
  • Go to the 'Boot' tab
  • In this 'Boot Settings'-screen, use your arrow buttons to move down to 'Boot Device Priority' and press <Enter>.
  • (Double)check if you have [Removable Device] enabled as one of the Boot options.
    If not, move down to the '3rd Boot Device' and press <Enter>
  • Move down to 'Removable Device' and press <Enter>
  • When it is set, press [F10] to save your settings and press <Enter> to confirm.

The notebook will reboot and when everything else is fine, you can pick the memory stick to boot from, using the <Esc> button after the (re)boot.
