USB may appear differently when put into another machine.
(hd1,1) for the usb may become (hd3,1) in another for example.

If needed to boot in another machine, at boot menu, go to prompt and check 
available boot partition to boot. 'ls' and 'search -f /vmlinuz' will list 
down available partitions as recognized by *that* computer. go back to menu 
and modify accordingly to boot.

Hope that helps.
