Live USB reboot problem
I'm running a Persistent Live USB version of Oneiric (11.10) on a Toshiba ( Sattelite L500 series) Laptop. There is no HDD installed at the moment so my only choice is Live CD (no persistence) or USB key. I've been away from Linux since Karmic, as I found that Windoze 7 was far superior to its previous incarnations. 11.10 is superior in many ways, but I am having trouble finding my way around, no biggie.
A niggling problem, and not worth spending too much time on, is that should I need to perform a system restart, my laptop seems to forget that there is anything plugged into the USB slot and tries to boot from optical drive followed by network boot ROM, neither, of which, are valid boot devices. A cold boot (power refresh) always has the desired effect, but what could be (I'm guessing) "ejecting" the device on any of the the USB ports?
P.S. New HDD will be installed after Christmas (I stole the existing one for a repair job) and then this question will be redundant.
