I put Ubuntu 15.04 (Unity desktop, AMD64) on a different USB drive, and 
didn't install any additional packages on that USB drive.

Using that USB drive, I installed Ubuntu 15.04 on one of my machines.  
The installation went fine, and after the USB drive was removed (after 
powering-down - more about that later), the installed system booted and 
ran, and that newly-installed partition became the one booted by default 
(indicating the bootloader was installed in the new partition).

After installing the system from my USB drive (it indicated I should 
reboot to use the new system), in the process of shutting down, a large 
number of error messages appeared, indicating it was having problems 
writing to the (sdb1) USB drive.

When I next tried to boot from that USB drive, it indicated some sort of 
problem (I should have written it down), and left me running in a 
console shell mode of some sort.
