After selecting Install Ubuntu from booting from a USB key it shows the loading Ubuntu screen for about 30 seconds then gives the error initramfs "Unable to find a medium containing a live file system" on a Lenovo Twist laptop.
What is unique about my error is that Ubuntu was installed and running fine on a partition of the my 500 GB Hard Drive. I had an SSD 24GB Cache. I replaced my normal HD with an SSD and installed Windows 8 on it. I then formatted the cache with FAT32 planning on putting Ubuntu on that 24GB. But now I can't boot from the same USB I used before with Linux. My boot order is USB HD, SSD Hard Drive, then Cache.
I have checked the MD5, used multiple tools to make the boot key, made sure I'm booting with AHCI, tried all USB ports, disabled USB 3.0, and tried everything from this bug report:
Also when I type "blkid" from the initramfs it does not show my USB key.
So I'm unable to boot from a Linux live USB key after changing my harddrive.
This question is asked before, but this is different than the others because it's unique to a SSD and the "solutions" to others do not work in this case. There are lots of causes of this error where when installing you get a "Unable to find a medium containing a live file system" but none of the solutions work and I believe this is unique to replacing my HD with an SSD. However someone has reported that they have the same issue without the SSD which makes me wonder if it's a function of the BIOS.
