I know. I was only testing the speed of my usb stick with hammer and
I discovered the bug. My steps are only a example :)
Some users install the operating systems in usb disks and they will
have this problem. No only a bootable OS like in the usb images, I mean
people with a real systems (tens of GB) in usb disks.
SATA, IDE and SCSI disks have a unique identifier, the serial number.
The USB disks need also a unique identifier.
