Your difficulty actually has nothing to do with GNU/Linux and everything to do with the piece of software on the motherboard that takes care of initializing the hardware and booting the operating. It needs to be configured to boot on the pendrive rather than on the hard drive. To enter the configuration, the key to press, right after the computer powers on, varies from hardware to hardware: http://www.tomsguide.com/answers/id-1805141/bootable-usb-flashdrive-work-acer-aspire.html seems to provide it for yours though.

Also, you probably want Trisquel 8, which is around the corner: http://jenkins.trisquel.info/makeiso/iso/trisquel_8.0_amd64.iso
