Ermm, your problem sound familiar to me ... i had this experience before ... As far as i remember i resolve this issue from BIOS setting there... make sure the boot sequence is correct lo .. MUST boot from CD-ROM. Then u need to check if some setting like Legacy USB is being enable or not ... because i don't know what brand u're using now

plug ur flash drive..
enter bios setting and go to "boot" section and press "F6" to move "hard drive" device up, press enter on the "hard drive" option and press "F6" to move the "USB Drive"device up. after all the change are set press "F10" to exit and save set..

reboot.. windows setup starts..
