I know it's a 4 years old topic but I have the same problem.

I see an error when I boot. It says that it cannot find the kickstart file in /media/sdb/. And that's normal because when I do an "ls /media/" in the busybox of the install, there is nothing in here... But like you I've seen that my USB drive is on /dev/sdb1.
I also tried to point to the partition rather than to the USB drive :

linux ks=hd:sdb1:/ks.cfg

But same thing, is trying to look for /media/sdb/ks.cfg

I'm using the latest netinstall of Ubuntu. Have you find any solution since your first post ? :D
