TalkingArch image on a USB stick doesn't boot

I was able to boot that specific image on a couple of different USB 
devices and two different machines with no issues. Your problem seems to 
be related to bios and/or boot order. If you have a way to select your 
boot device, either by pressing the escape key or a function key (mine 
is f8), try to select it from the boot menu. Note that the boot menu 
doesn't speak or beep, so it can be a bit tricky to know that you're 
there and which device you have selected. Trial and error is probably 
your best bet in this situation. If nothing works, you may need to burn 
the image to a CD.
