Is this theoretical with SATA, or have you reproduced it?

The usb sticks include sata-modules as well as usb-modules, so AFAICS,
hardware detection should happen in the same order when booting from the
usb stick as booting from eg, netboot.

And I don't understand your report about problems with SCSI either,
since the USB stick also includes all SCSI modules.
