Checked md5sum and it matched.
Ran the original USB key a couple of times, and it gave the same
error, but booted into a screen the second time, with font sizes, etc.
messed up.
Changed USB stick from Sandisk Cruzer Freedom 4GB to PNY Attache 4GB.
Rechecked md5sum on the PNY stick. It matched and PNY fs-update worked

Let me know if you need anything else.
