Do you see any error messages when your laptop does not boot?
How did you install tinycore on the usb stick?
What version and architecture of tinycore are you trying to boot?
What processor does your laptop have?

it sees the usb, but it doesn't boot, so it switches to the default other operating system on the laptop

Acer 5315 cpu:T7500 Ram:2gb

USB flash memory appears in the F12 bios boot menu! and I tried to boot selectively., could it be errors in commands!?

How did you flash your USB ?
I'm guessing that you simply dd the ISO image onto the USB

problem solved ;)
1 ; bios updated ( BIOS Date:2008/12/08 Version:V1.45 Vendor:Acer Size:1.4 MB )
2 ; iso file was written with "Universal USB Installer". As hardware; USB = with SD card reader

note : waitusb=5 command is no longer needed !
