I am installing elementary OS on my computer as a primary operating system. Whenever I choose my USB as the boot device nothing happens. Can someone please walk me through doing this?

If what you want is to boot into the usb device in order to install elementary, then the steps are located here. Now, if you have trouble booting to your usb device, I would reccomend:

  1. Check in the BIOS of your computer if USB is selected as the FIRST boot device.
  2. Reinstall the OS to the USB device with UNetbootin following the steps listed in the link.
  3. Finally, give it another go.
