Make sure it is set to boot off the USB (and is capable).  You may have to hit the 'boot options' key or change a Bios setting or two.  

 

Some motherboards only want to boot from specific USB ports as well.  Try one directly connected to the motherboard rather than a front-panel one

Did you make the USB bootable?  Thats a pretty important step.

 

If you used Rufus, make sure to select NOT the UEFI option

That is a clear sign that the machine is not booting from the USB or that the USB is not bootable hence the non-system disk error.
