Confused

Dear All,
I used a HP 4 gb USB for installing windows 7 in my Lenovo Ideapad S100.
I prepared that bootable usb by using windows 7 to USB tool. But after installing that os , That USB was not detected by any pc. I have tried that in many PCs. Is there any problem with the USB or my USB was dead?

Boot into Setup (Bios) go to Boot Priority and make USB First Boot Device. Save and Exit. Restart with USB plugged in, if it does not boot, and USB is first boot, then the Flash drive was not created correctly. If you have an ISO image of Windows 7 use the Microsoft Store tool to create the Bootable USB Flash drive.

Boot into Setup (Bios) by pressing F2 at startup. Go to Boot, Enable USB Boot. Save and Exit. Restart with Flash drive in. If this fails to boot from the Flash Drive, try booting the flash drive on another computer, if this fails, then the flash drive is not configured properly.
Try WinToFlash
