Thank you Richard!

I bought a new usb drive--no loss, they were on christmas special--put the
files on that and it worked without a hitch.

I've seen this before.  I seem to remember that it was an issue with open
firmware not liking the USB flash drive.  My first suggestion is to try a
different USB flash drive. Or if you have an SD card to try and put the
files on that.
