Boot error when booting of USB

I tried the steps in http://communities.vmware.com/thread/118492?tstart=30

I get a Boot Error when trying to boot ESXi 3.5 Update 3-123629 of a USB stick.

USB is the first boot option in BIOS. I have two USB sticks and tried

both, no success. Tried in

different USB ports, no success so far. I also disconnected my USB keyboard and mouse, but it gave the same Boot Error

Your input is appreciated. Let me know if oyu need more info.

My motherboard is an Intel DQ35JOE.

Changing the usb setting to emulate hard drive (it was in Auto) in the BIOS fixed the issue.
