Can I boot from USB 3.0 device


I downloaded the Universal USB Installer from http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/. I can successfully boot using USB 2.0 drive in USB 2.0 port. I successfully (??) installed on USB 3.0 drive. At least the Universal USB Installer said it was successful. However, can't boot with this drive in either a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port. Is it possible to boot using USB 3.0? If so, do I need a special installer? Thanks for your help. I'm a Linux newbie.
