Which version of CentOS?  6.0, 6.1, or 6.2?  Which kernel?

USB3 support isn't as robust as it should be, prior to 6.2, but I've not tried booting with USB3.0.

I do know the live DVD will recognize a drive on a USB3.0 port, but I haven't tried booting a live CentOS stick there yet.... Hmmm, perhaps I should, since I do have one (but it's not 'installed' to the stick, it's a LiveUSB image, not an installation).
