I was curious as to whether you figured out how to solve this problem

I once had a similar issue with a book-sized "PC" and trying to boot from a thumbdrive. After researching the issue, I came to the guess that there was some sort of a problem in Debian's installer (some other distros installed properly). Eventually I "solved" the problem by borrowing a USB DVD drive and installing off from that.
