It shouldn't be an issue with an USB thumb drive, but may be a problem with (especially older) USB hard disks. Normally fast/quick boot would be enabled, but that may cause the computer to complete the boot before all USB attached devices are ready and detected. Then it would skip your USB... Also make sure POST / power-on self-test / startup diagnostic or similarly called is enabled.
This worked thank you. The problem is that the this made for some really slow operations. I'm running USB 2.0, I'll try again when I get a system with USB 3.0.
