#1819: Non-compressed SoaS USB fails to boot using helper CD
    Reporter:  David Kergyl  |          Owner:  mchua sdz

    Severity:  Major         |       Keywords:  Boot helper CD non-compressed non-live SoaS USB

 I created a non-compressed Blueberry 4GB USB SoaS that boots successfully
 in a Dell Latitude D630 laptop configured to boot from the USB.  The same
 SoaS will not boot, however, using the boot helper CD on an old IBM
 ThinkPad laptop.  The two write-thru drive caches are assumed, but the IBM
 never gets to the "SoaS 1" loading-bars screen.

 The IBM laptop will successfully boot to Sugar, however, using the same
 helper CD and a LiveUSB SoaS.

 Does the helper CD only work with a LiveUSB SoaS?  If so, perhaps it would
 be worthwhile to create a helper CD for non-compressed USB SoaS's.
