If I were you, I'd probably explore around those BIOS menus, but still, if anyone else can help you, that would be great; otherwise, I might be able to help you if/when I find that memory chip.

And when I say press, I mean from the time you press the power button, press again, and again and again and again as fast as you can the f10 button
Until you have a option menu, or a windows start.
... sometime it's not f10, if f10 don't work, try f8, or I once saw f2

f5 = Boot Manager
f2 = Utility Set up which has priority options in it that I messed up earlier but fixed
f10 = Edit Boot Options = CMD Prompt but I wouldn't know what to type in there to actually run my flashdrive. BRB Googling: It looks DOS style but google is coming up with nothing.

Your goal is to get to a screen similar to one of these: bios - Google Search
Is there a reason you would use NTFS with a Linux multi-boot?

And I'm pretty sure I Know how to get to the BIOS I just don't know what to do when I get there. I tried changing boot priority and making USB higher, but that just messed up my PC so I had to change it back. :/
Some of the tutorials I've read said I needed to convert my USB from FAT32 to NTFS, am I not supposed to do this :S ?

But you are sure that the boot sector you're working with ends with the 0xAA55 boot signature, right?

CD/DVD ROM -> HD1 -> HD2
Or just SATA ports or something, then you need to Google your computers model and find all the boot options and look for the USB port options.

We could also use 'liveusb-creator' from Fedora to create Live USB.
On my laptop (2010), I must enter F2 and choose boot from USB Generic.
And I am sure you also can boot from USB on your laptop.
My older laptop (about 2006/2007) can't boot from USB.
Yeah, like WP said that older computers don't support boot from USB.
