cannot boot from usb on intel dg33tl

i am attempting to install FreeNas onto a computer, however whenever i attempt to boot off my usb i get the message "no bootable device insert -- bootdisk and press any key".

I tried booting off the usb on my other computer, and it did work.

The motherboard in the system which won't boot off the usb is an intel dg33tl.

is there anyway to boot off the usb or can this motherboard just not boot off a usb?

thanks

What kind of USB flash device? Formatted how? Does it require UEFI boot? If so, there's your problem. [Edit3: enable UEFI or make media with Legacy boot]

[Edit: Or vice-versa: needs Legacy boot and this is not enabled]

[Edit2: No, booting from USB is a requirement all around, so it has to be able to do it.]
