Indeed. it sounds like it's not the problem: the system *is* finding
some boot device it isn't happy with. And this boot device is most
probably (not 100%, but close ;) the freshly-prepared USB stick. So
I'd say first go for the stick (how it was prepared, etc.) then go
for the BIOS. Then go for the rest.
