  1. If you're trying to boot from the USB, have you changed the boot order in the BIOS/UEFI ?

    USB 2/3 are forwards/backwards compatible with each other.
  2. Look like the real problem is the FalconFour's Ultimate Boot CD or the grub4dos don't work on usb 3.0 port

    ahhh god damn it:pt1cable:
  3. As far as I am aware, most BIOS dont support USB3 input due to a size constraint. BIOS' have been designed to run off something ridiculous like 64MB of capacity, so USB3 drivers aren't included to save on space.
    Its the reason why motherboards always have two USB2 at the back (until Haswell anyway) so that Mouse and Keyboard can be used in the BIOS.

    You might have to boot off a disc and install windows that way.
