Linux boot error on USB

Downloaded a Linux ISO from its website and burn the iso file to my usb (Kingston 32G). I changed the boot device to USB in BIOS but when booting from it, it gets a black screen only. No menu for installation like usual.

I am curious how did you burn the iso file ?This may be the cause of the problem,a correct iso file burning method can't go wrong.

Okay,this tool does that, but the reason why you failed makes me confused.How about RMPrepUSB if you don't mind.

It worked on my Windows computer.

There are other tutorials for you to follow.
