You installed your OS on your Flash Drive? If so, it turned your Flash Drive into a Local Disk.

1. Reformat your Flash Drive
2. Download and install PowerISO
32-Bit
http://www.poweriso.net/PowerISO6.exe
64-Bit
http://www.poweriso.net/PowerISO6-x64.exe
Burn your ISO file in your Flash Drive
4. Reboot PC and open Bios
5. Make sure to put Removable Drives your first boot, 2nd is your CD/DVD and 3rd is HDD
6. Press F10 and press Enter
7. After POST, wait for the "Press any key to continue" thingy to install the driver.
