Hello Gernot,

Here, I'm make the USB boot manualy.

I follow this steps:

1- make an FAT32 in USB stick
2- install the syslinux (version 3.86) with command:
sudo ./syslinux /dev/sdc2
(/dev/sdc2 is my USB stick)
3- extract files from iso to USB stick
4- rename the file "isolinux.cfg" to "syslinux.cfg" (in folder isolinux)
5- rename the folder "isolinux" to "syslinux"
6- mark boot flag in partition
