Sorry, I think I wasn't clear enough :)
The machine actually boots from USB the second time. FAI loads from USB
stick (I can tell: the stick is blinking, and booting is slower than
from HD). At first, the Linux kernel is loaded, and then initrd I think...
Then, FAI (or is it the Linux kernel?) needs to find out where its files
and scripts are, so it can install and run them. At that point, I want
it to find the USB stick and mount it. But instead, it finds the
recovery partition and mounts that.
With kind regards,
