The problem was I have UEFI, I had to play around in the BIOS settings to get it to properly boot. I turned off secure and fast boot. It won't allow me to set my USB as my default boot so I will have to do that manually but that's no big deal. Thank you to all who helped on this question. Very much appreciated.

Thanks that helped. For me, I had to a) unbind the usb devices, and b) manually off the wifi. In case somebody finds it useful, here is a): root@tosh:~# cat /etc/pm/sleep.d/20_usb_suspend_fix #!/bin/sh LOGTAG=PwrUsbFix UNDO=/var/run/pm-utils/pm-suspend/storage/rebind_usb.sh # check am root [ "$(id -u)" = 0 ] || { echo "$LOGTAG : must be run as ...
