Fluidmotion,

You might try this in a command prompt (with administrative privileges): "chkdsk X: /r", without quotes and where X is your USB drive.

I also found this link. However, it is only something I looked up through a quick google search, so use at your own risk. From the ehow.com website: http://www.ehow.com/how_6055690_test...pen-drive.html

Did you change boot order on flash? If so, you hosed the install on the flash and will have to start over.
