My requirement, I described above, was to prepare a bootable USB from a RHEL
server, which uses EFI. I have done this before many times on Debian
without EFI. I will test this with Buster and post the steps here next.

I use such USB sticks for resque operations or when I need to for example
extend a root partition, or whatever you can imagine.

Regarding older hardware, it might be  that the kernel does not support this
or that. You know Debian does not support CPU<=586 and might be that some
drivers are missing, but when you run from the USB, you will know for sure.
