Now you must reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to boot from USB on your PC. But BIOS Configuration is different from system to system, but generally method has this page

1 Reboot the system

2 While booting (before Windows starts loading), get into the BIOS configuration screen by Clicking something like F1, F2, Delete or Escape buttons. Hotkey instructions are generally provided on the screen.

3 Go to the section that contains your boot devices in BIOS.

4 With your USB drive plugged in, the USB drive should be listed. If it isn’t, your system might not support booting from USB. Assuming that it is supported (as is the case with virtually all modern hardware), promote your USB drive to the primary boot device.

5 Exit from the BIOS configuration with saving all changes. (PC will Restart)

Assuming that you properly configured your BIOS and your USB drive supports booting, Windows setup should now load. Depending on the speed of your USB drive.
