Can you provide more information?
1. What kali version did you download?
2. Does the hashsum matches that on the website?

You may wish to consider
1. Re-download the image from https://docs.kali.org/downloading/kali-linux-live-usb-install

2. Perform a hashsum check against the downloaded image
(I used to encounter issues with USB boot, but redownload and recreate the USB works miracle)

3. Create the USB medium on 2 USB drives indicated on https://docs.kali.org/downloading/kali-linux-live-usb-install
Why 2? Because sometimes for some reason, not all USB works equally well.

Let us know how it goes

Due to the age of the OS (Kali Moto [v1], Kali Safi [v2], Kali Rolling 2016.x/2017.1), these legacy versions are no longer supported.
