Look, it's not trying to boot off of the USB drive from what you're saying, so you first have to find the device selector/boot order manager for your motherboard and choose the USB stick. The fact that your current GRUB is a zombie does not have anything to do with booting into a LiveUSB. If you do not know how to select from which media to boot, then sharing what hardware you're using, especially your motherboard, might help, but I might not be able to help, as I am using a laptop, not a desktop.
Thanks for the advice and help, i got it to work. For some reason every program i tried to make to bootable usb failed to do it properly only when i got the latest rufus version and imaged it in dd mode did it work. thanks again for the help!
