GPT should have no impact on booting from the memory stick, as far as I
Thomas, can you please zero out the beginning of the 1024 bytes of your
memory stick, as follows (please take care to note the actual device for
your memory stick, and change '/dev/da0' below, as appropriate):
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/da0 bs=1024 count=1
Then re-write the memory stick per the instructions in the Handbook.
Newly added to this section of the Handbook was a note to ensure the
device is _not_ mounted (either manually, or automatically).
Please let us know if this helps.
