Problems like this are commonly video issues, though Intel generally works well with Linux.

On the problem machine, please run the command lspci and post the portion of the output that concerns they video chipset.

For some reason 2.0 usb flash drives won't boot on my Vaio laptop. 3.0's work:-
Try a 3.0 usb flash drive and see if that works.

Is this your machine? If so you have 1 usb 3.0 port:-
