That is what I was going to try next. The 'howtos' I've been reading require putting many of the boot files on the thumb drive, so would it even be possible to unmount/remove the usb stick after the machine is booted up? If I was to do it this way, I would likely use two separate key files, on two separate USB sticks. Reference: http://www.proportion.ch/index.php?page=31 Thanks for your feedback.
