14 So, you're saying that usb stick has actually changed in some way after
15 the install? That's certainly possible. Have you tried making a new
16 one from the live cd?
18 If two machines won't boot from your live install usb stick then there

21 The point is to boot the live cd (usb stick) and make a list of all the
22 drivers the kernel is using when the hardware is working correctly, and
23 then build your own kernel using the same drivers.
