please check your USB boot media and your BIOS settings. boot0cfg and every other
piece of code heavily relies on correct BIOS implementation. In your case it seems,
the BIOS doesn't feel, your USB media might be bootable at all.
If BIOS feels, your USB media is bootable, it will simulate it as a legacy device
that is accessible to boot0cfg and friends.

As this issue is clearly neither a usb(4) nor a kernel problem, we're closing this PR.
Please feel free to write to our fine mailing lists if you have problems preparing bootable media.
