If you have a reasonably recent ASUS mb with an AMi BIOS, setting it to boot from USB is rather obscure. You need to plug in the USB stick and reboot. The USB device will then show up in the list of hard drives under Boot Order (going from memory there, but its on the Boot tab, and the second or third entry, iirc). Move the USB HDD entry to the top of the list, then save and reboot.

On boot, ISTR that AMI does like Lenovo does, and you can use F12 to select the boot device. Even so, it will now boot from the USB stick.

It's rather weird that the 'boot from USB' option does not exist unless there is a USB stick plugged in but.....
