simple.........

1- make sure the pc supports usb boot- check bios
2- are u sure u have created a "bootable" iso?- u will need magic iso to create the proper iso and use magic iso to extract to the pen

don;t think it can be done. Only from startup disks i.e. floppy or a DVD.
You would normally change your boot sequence in the bios so that your pc booted from CD rom first or A drive.
There may be a reinstaller already on, try holding down F9 or F10 or F11 while it's booting, it might let you go back to factory settings this way.

try this see if it helps ]http//ww…htm
