HELP! Installing Peppermint 2 onto desktop fromCD/USB

I have downloaded Peppermint 2 onto DVD and onto USB. Can you please tell me the procedure for installing? I know i have to go into BIOS and change something? I changed boot order - no option for USB found. So what do i do? Can’t wait to get rid of XP.

Is this a laptop ? … if so, can you give us the make/model.

is the USB stick listed in the BIOS as an attached Hard drive … if it is, you’ll have to change the boot order of the hard drives.

If the usb is found as a FDD harddrive then you can’t boot from that stick. Make and model would help a lot.
