This seems to depend on the age of the machine and how you select what
to boot off.  If I have go go into BIOS to tell it to boot from USB the 
drive order on older machine tends to change so that the USB drive is 
/dev/sda.  If there is a Fn key available to select what to boot from 
then the USB drive is normally the last drive in the list.
