Actually that does not matter at all.

I have the same problem: if I leave an usb disk plugged in at reboot, I
also get a GRUB error 15.
Tested and verified with fat32 and ext3.

I have only two workarounds:
1. never reboot
2. when I reboot, first unplug all usb devices, reboot, and only after
grub and the kernel are loaded, plug the usb devices back in.
