I've never gotten that to work, either by dd'ing to the raw device or
to a bootable MBR partition. I'm not sure why it doesn't work, but it
doesn't, at least on the machines where I've tried it. OTOH, I've
consistently gotten things to work by copying the contents of the ISO
onto a different file system on a bootable MBR partition on the USB
