Try to press these Boot Menu keys rapidly on booting.

[F2] for BIOS, [ESC] for boot menu (ASUS P53E)

Also please connect your bootable usb to USB 2.0 port

Could be the solution: I think you are making a legacy boot. Make sure your hard disk(or ssd) listed in boot menu immediately after your USB drive.

  • In addition, use USB 2.0 port not USB 3.0
