Here is my attempt to help:
I do hope it _is_ help, because it are only questions.
How does the partition table of the USBmemorystick look?
Can you mount the /dev/sdX2? I say sdX because the testcomputer may have
a /dev/sda (and a /dev/sdb ( and /dev/sdc)) for itself?
When in the live system, what shows `mount`?
When in the live system, what is the output of `cat /proc/cmdline`?
