    Also, many older PC's (even 2-3 yo) won't recognize USB flash sticks as bootable devices (2 of my 3 PC's won't, but a newish Acer Laptop will). Further, even if your systems are capable of booting usb flash, the bios may need to be reconfigured to change the boot order, placing removable drives as first, optical drives as second and standard hard drives as third in sequence.

    Well i have found a solution but it does'nt really make any sense. With a diferent usb flashdrive its boots up fine on my computer at home. But the other one i was using that was giving me problems also booted up fine on another computer but not mine.... But now it does'nt really matter, thanks for all the help

    I would try a fedora distro, one of my computers will only boot fedora oddly enough. I named that computer...it's a bad word and I can't post that here.

    May be a USB 2 versus USB 3 issue (or if REALLY old, a USB 1 versus USB 2 issue), depending on what your laptop has compared to the others.
