Have not encountered a problem like this before, but you can try booting from your Windows CD if you have Windows... While your USB is inserted in the USB port. After entering the setup continue until you find your partitions where your drives is listed, you will notice your USB Drive will also be listed there. Select your USB Drive, and simply Delete it and recreate the drive. After that, just reboot your PC, and do not continue the windows setup.... Boot up Normally, and see if it works. Hope it helps
