Yes.  It looks like your USB drive has a corrupted system image on it.
The bootloader is there, but it can't load the kernel from the USB drive.

I suggest trying again: either rewrite your current USB drive, or try
again with a fresh one.  Either way, be sure to verify the checksum on
the memstick image you downloaded before doing anything else with it.
