First thing you want to do is plug in the usb flash drive into the computer. Start the computer, enter into your bios and look to see if "removable drive" is listed under your boot options. If it isnt then you will need to see if you can update the bios and then try again. If still nothing, then you can not dual boot off the usb drive. You could partition your hard drive and use part of that to dual boot.
