I read it as meaning that the USB stick works as a live system
(first boot), but not as an installer (second boot).

Which makes me wonder about earlier discussions (maybe months ago)
concerning whether installing Debian from a live stick can be
problematical (though I don't remember the nature of the problems
people had). I've never tried it.
