Hello I do have a usb 3.0 thumb drive and a usb 3.0 connector
when I tried to install directly to the usb thumb drive I get the same 
boot message that I have been having problems with.
if I were to install the live distro to the usb drive then it works 
I am using universal usb installer for windows to install to the thumb
