I've just tested 11.3.0 on XO-1 and XO-1.5, using firmware versions
Q2E48 and Q3B22, with the current collection stick, and it works fine.

There are a couple of reasons why the XO ignores the stick and boots

1.  the laptop is not secured ... so hold down the X game key during
boot and this will temporarily secure it,

2.  the filesystem on the stick is not readable by the newer firmware
version supplied with 11.3.0 ... please check the filesystem with
Linux dosfsck, Mac OS X Disk Utility, or Microsoft Windows scandisk,
