  1. Best answer
    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.
