Thinkpad x120e - Kernel not booting - USB Stick

I'm having this odd issue when booting from a USB stick, trying to install just any Linux distro. Grub works fine, till it gets to the "booting kernel" prompt and then just hangs there. No led activity is happening on the flash stick as well..


Any ideas? I have loaded up setup defaults on the BIOS.

How are you preparing your USB stick?  What grub - 2 or legacy?  What does menu.lst look like - if it's grub legacy?
