image works both in qemu and with real hardware, so must be a local issue.

please make sure you did write the image correctly to the stick, with
something like 'dd if=binary.img of=/dev/sdb' whereas /dev/sdb relates
to the device of your usb stick, not a partition.

My USB stick was of 1GB and image size is 1.1GB. Sorry about filing it
as bug. It is working in qemu.
