    I believe it has to do with the way it is handled. Inside of it, the
    USB root hub will see 8 different devices, corresponding to all the
    different types of removable media there is. (When you plug it in
    while in Windows, you may notice that 6-8 new drives will appear in
    "My Computer".) I'm guessing that it can confuse the BIOS if the media
    you're using is like drive #4 instead of #1. It's possible not all
    BIOS sees past the first 1-2.

    I'm going to test this when I get a chance. The bootable one I've been
    using is drive #1 when plugging it into Windows. We'll see what
    happens when I use a SD card instead (drive #4).
