I have no problem booting from the USB created on my WINDOWS machine (toshiba) when I use it on my older SONY VAIO the first time.
Everything seems to work just fine. I can connect to the internet, browse, etc. I do not run the install and just shut down using the CLOUDREADY shutdown. I turn the VAIO off.
I then try to boot from the USB a second time on the VAIO and the boot hangs up. I get about 5 flashes of light from the USB drive and then the VAIO just sits.
It seems like the USB gets something written to it that makes it not usable after its first use on the SONY.
If I go back to my newer windows machine and rebuild the USB drive, it will again work the first time on the SONY, then not work a second time.
It is an 8 gig USB.
The VAIO does have a version of UBUNTU on it if that is some kind of clue. But since I never go into UBUNTU with the cloudready USB plugged in, that does not seem like the source of the USB getting "damaged".
This is not a big deal. Just kind of weird it works once, then won't work a second time.
