The problem we've seen is matching the PC's USB port with the right drive.  
Older PCs with USB 2.0 ports often won't boot to the USB 3.0 drive, so we've 
had to keep a few USB 2.0 drives around until those machines are finally 
replaced.  Newer PCs will use either USBs with no issues other than speed to 
copy down the boot files.

Subject: [mssms] Recommended USB Flash Drives for OSD

Hello All,

I would like to entertain the idea again of using USB for imaging. In the past 
we were using the Kingston Traveler USB 3.0 drives and I recently read that 
these are known to have issues with imaging. I did not know this and always 
wondered why imaging would sometimes flake out for us.

Does anyone use USB 2.0 drives that you have used for a while that are 
consistently working with OSD?
