Buffer I/O error: USB Flash Drive Boot Failure

linux-howto

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I install FC in USB flash drives with one main reason: Its unraveled speed (compared with other popular Linux distros ) in booting up. However, I have been, and am being frustrated by boot failures in my experience with FC10 and FC11, both end up in data retrieving problem as saved data in persistent drive can only be accessed after system boot up. The boot up messages that splash the screen read: "Loading Vmlinuz0 Loading initrd0.img ..... ready ata2: softreset failed (device not ready) sd 6:0:0:0 [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through sd 6:0:0:0 [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through (repeated message once) Buffer I/O error on device dm0, logical block 0 Buffer I/O error on device dm0, logical block 1 Buffer I/O error on device dm0, logical block 2 Buffer I/O error on device dm0, logical block 3 Buffer I/O error on device dm0, logical block 0" (and screen freezes) When it booted successfully, the lines before the "Buffer..." normally appear, so I presume the "ata2: softreset failed.." is not the fatal factor. Booting the flash drives (corsair voyager and supertalent ST pico_A 4G flash drives, both created with fedora USB crator, with 1G allocated for persistent drive) in all three other different desktop machines, (intel: i865 chips, amd:VIA KA800(?) and AMD 780G) have the same result. In the last occasion I have data locked up waiting to be recovered, has anybody a good solution? (HowTos)
