Thanks for those, NoOp.  I've now been through some of them and have
come to the conclusion that my machine will not boot from USB no matter
what the BIOS says so it has been an exercise in futility.
At least that is the case /if/ the USB installation did actually work.
The key holds the correct files and passes the MD5sum comparison so
I've probably made some mistakes, myself, in the installation or BIOS
setup.  Maybe its time to get some newer hardware for myself.
