The laptop may not be able to boot from a USB device. What was your friend doing when the laptop failed? How did it fail; did it freeze, shut down, make odd noises, etc? How old is the laptop?

Edit: I have no access to twitter at work, so I'm not able to see the picture. If it shows a boot failure followed by "Strike any key to continue" message, it is possible that the hard drive failed. This would not be your friend's fault, stuff happens.
