Well taking a few minutes to read the manual could probably save you a whole day of frustration ! ;)

I used the dd command to write the .iso to my thumb drive, then use the keyboard interrupt (F10 on my NUC) to specify the boot device when I boot it up to load the OS. If you do that, but your computer still doesn't boot into the thumb drive, you need to re-write it to your thumb drive.
