Switch on your target system - it MUST be off to start with (if it is a notebook, make sure it is running from the mains as erasing a hard disk can take hours), enter the BIOS Setup menu (e.g. by pressing F2 or DEL usually) and change your SATA HDD controller settings from 'AHCI' or 'Enhanced' to Compatible/Legacy IDE. If your BIOS does not have these settings then don't worry. Also, change the boot priority to make sure you boot from the USB drive. Save the settings and exit.
Boot from the USB drive on the target system (the one you want to erase).
