    seems the laptop's BIOS/UEFI isn't set to boot from USB ... change that [make USB the first boot option]

    In the BIOS Settings Change the boot order to boot off of USB first.

    Also in the BIOS Settings there may be a Setting that allows booting of USB and that has to be turned on.

    Failing that:   Google "How to Boot From USB on Acer Predator Helios 300"

    Which I just did:

    Here is a YOU TUBE Video that will show you how.

    Make sure you're creating a disk with GPT partitions (not MBR).
