So I followed all the steps for installation up until I have to boot the USB. I go into the BIOS menu and I select to boot from my USB, but nothing happens after that. I just get a black screen with a cursor on the top left corner. I waited a couple of hours and nothing pops up, please can someone help? My specs are:

Model: HP mini 210-1000
Current OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
Processor: 1.66GHz
1024MB RAM
graphics card: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150
