    lol, i meant the hardware.
    win 7 pro is not a machine, it's an operating system.
    fwiw, i used to have an old fujitsu/siemens amilo laptop that could not boot (linux) from usb although it appeared to be able to.
    had to burn a CD first.

    also, have you tried the other usb options (after pressing f12)?

    anyhow, the process to create a bootable usb medium is this:
    1. download the iso.
    2. check that the .iso is complete and not corrupt (checksums, usually on the same web page as the download link for the .iso). you will have to find out how to do that on winblows.
    3. create a bootable usb medium (or a CD) with a special program (in other words, it is NOT enough to copy the .iso to the usb)
    4. check AGAIN

    ...and only then, reboot.

    Hi Segfault,
    When I burned the iso onto the usb drive, it told me the burning was succesful but that did not take Murphy into account.
    I will try it on another comp but if no go I'll give it away.
    For some reason always had trouble installing systems.
    Many thanks for all the support.
