Steve McIntyre and i understood John's statement that after dd or cp
there is a MBR partition table on the USB stick. The following
conversation would make few sense if we were wrong.

The MBR and its table are on the USB stick because they already are in
the ISO image. dd or cp just copy them to the medium.

  $  /sbin/fdisk -l debian-9.3.0-amd64-netinst.iso
  Device                          Boot Start    End Sectors  Size Id Type
  debian-9.3.0-amd64-netinst.iso1 *        0 593919  593920  290M  0 Empty
  debian-9.3.0-amd64-netinst.iso2       3760   4591     832  416K ef EFI (FAT-12/1

Good point. Let's hope the machine offers this mode.

Have a nice day :)
