I have found out that not all usb drives boot well - don't know why on some
machines some drives does not boot - same image on another drive boot.
For example sandisk 4GB do not and Kingston 1GB do on same machine with same
image

I have observed a similar behaviour on one specific PC (rather old, 2005 or so). I guess it is machine/firmware-dependent rather than USB drive-dependent.

Even stranger : it would only happen on a cold boot. On a warm reboot after running any Linux kernel, the USB drive would boot just fine. USB controller initialization issue, I guess.
