I am trying to install PCLinuxOS MiniMe on a USB thumb drive. I am able to complete the installing but cannot boot to it once the installation is complete. I have tried reinstalling a few times now.

What else I've tried so far:

1) installing bootloader on every available sda drive (sda being thumb drive)
2) making sure everything is set appropriately in my BIOS
3) bringing up a boot menu during DOS startup. The USB drive is listed as an option and I have selected it.

Beyond that, I am at a loss. Any help would be much appreciated!
