Upgrade OS to Windows 8 from jump drive.

I have some Lenovo 131e tablets that I want to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8.  I have the disk but they don't have disk drives. I was able to put the install on jump drives but I can't get any of the boot order to look for it on the jump drive.  What should I be looking for?  My options are:
1) USB CD
2) USB HDD
3) PCI LAN
4) ATA HDD0
5) USB FDD

Anything else I should know?

you have to make sure that the USB drive is formatted and bootable.  Here is a website that explains it all:

Your other thread talked about recovery files, is this really a full blown setup, that you have?
You could also
-Grab the 8 key and install 8.1 rightaway using an 8.1 setup from a jumpdrive
-Do a real upgrade to 8, then to 8.1, keeping prorams and settings from 7
