[CALUG] Booting Ubuntu from USB

Sorry if this has been covered before, but I've just installed a new motherboard/CPU/RAM/HDD and would like to install Ubuntu 13. But the new MoBo doesn't support my IDE DVD, so I'm forced to boot from a USB key. I tried one USB key, but StartupDiskCreator crashed without explanation everytime. I switched to another key, StartupDiskCreator seemed to finish copying the files, but then disappeared (i.e. I didn't get a satisfying success message.) When I tried to reboot with the key (and with the boot priority set to USB Key first, of course), I get this message from the BIOS:
Error: No configuration file found
No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found.
Is there any way to verify that my USB key is in fact good and bootable? Am I doing something wrong with Startup Disk Creator? Should I be getting a proper "success" message from it upon completion? Is there another way to do this?
Thanks very much - Ed
