Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet
When you first start your computer, press F2 (may be different according to your computer, look for the option to boot into BIOS)
From BIOS you can configure the computer to read from the USB you created. Restart your machine, with the USB in, and you should get to the OS startup and installation.

Try to make sure that the installation that you put on the flash drive is bootable. Use pendrive Linux http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/
I personally use it as it is very easy to make bootable flash drives

It may be that your BIOS is not setup to boot from CD before HDD. To get to the BIOS, look for the message for getting into the BIOS on the first screen after rebooting. There are many versions of the BIOS depending on the computer, but usually its F1, esc, del, F2, F3. It should say which to push on the first screen after rebooting. Look in the BIOS fot boot order, then put CD drive as the first boot order. Then save by either hitting F10, or pressing esc. This will make it so it looks for a boot.ini on the CD before firing up the HDD. Some CDs/DVD's will boot on their own, but usually it will say 'Press any key to boot from CD'. Press that and go from there. I would choose the option to format the drive before it installs, since the way you did it might not of erased it all the way. (Usually a clean formatted HDD will say 'Missing Operating System', not boomgr missing). Try that first then let me know if this worked for you. Also, if you are using an windows 7 upgrade disk, it will not work. Has to be the complete operating system disk for a clean install.
