I'm somewhat new to the inner-workings of Linux so forgive me if this is a stupid problem.
I used the instructions on Ubuntu's website to build my LiveUSB drive from scratch. It seems to work perfectly except when I restart the OS.
Both shutdown -R now from the command line, and the restart command from the GUI seem to shutdown the computer successfully but when the bios searches for the USB drive it cant find it.
It almost seems like the drive isn't ready to be accessed yet. When I shut the computer completely off and then turn it back on it finds the drive just fine. Is there some trick to getting it to restart successfully? Is there some way to cause the system to completely finish with the USB drive before it starts the reboot process? I've tried the drive on a number of different computers with the same result.
Thanks in advance for any help!
