Isn't the boot device set in the BIOS? Perhaps your BIOS doesn't include
a USB device in its selections?

Any combination of preseed directives can be used

AFAIK, not on the website. You can generate all the preseed options for
yourself. Search the wiki for "preseed".
Brian, thanks for the reply. I see that that would seem to work
In the end I veered towards the 'preseed' approach, partly because
some guidelines I was following and which included the USB rewrite
were based on that objective. My first try has failed to produce a
bootable USB, but I'll do a lot more testing and checking before
perhaps asking for any more help. I recall that there's recently been
a long thread about preseeding which will be helpful, I think.
