Peter E description of the "boot" was somewhat ambiguous.  I interpreted 
it as a boot was initiating but stalling.

On a couple of circa 2002 machines I have, USB stick will not boot - 
period.  Absolutely no display other that "no boot device found - insert 
boot medium and press Enter".  That is because the relevant BIOS are not 
GRUB2 compatible.  ISTR some DVD too are now also using GRUB2 in lieu 
isolinux to boot.
