Hi
What are the correct BIOS settings in order to boot from USB flash drive?

There should be an option to set USB as the first boot device.
But no all BIOSes support booting from USB, specially old ones.

Use Plop in cases like that:

There is USB-ZIP, USB-FDD, USB-CDROM in BIOS but none of them works.

Plop isn't working for me - the computer restarts instead of loading the USB flash drive.

PS. I used command in terminal "dd if=image.iso of=/dev/sdb" to create the USB live installer.

So you don't have just USB entry.
Do you have CD/DVD option to boot?

Yes - I've used it with plop after creating its iso image on a CD-RW.

What I could suggest in this case, is burning sparky minimalcli iso on a blank CD and try to install sparky using text based Advanced installer.
