    Hi vinatex,

    You have to access the boot menu by pressing a special key (ie, F key, Del, etc) when the splash screen first appears. It should display a text menu that identifies which key you need to press,. Once there, select the UEFI USB boot option and it should boot from the USB drive but "only" if it is recognized as a valid boot drive. However, if it is not, see this tutorial for help:

    UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows

    Good luck and hope this helps.

    If it is just booting past that drive, then it is not being recognized as bootable. Follow the link to the tutorial I provided and properly prepare and format that drive as directed.

    Update: Does your menu have two USB drive options by chance:

    USB device (drive name maybe)
    UEFI USB device )drive name maybe)
