I do not think the BIOS is having a problem with the partition size. I suspect that the problem is that the boot loader did not get installed on the USB drive. I have run into this a couple of times. There should be a troubleshooting section that covers this. I don't remember the the fix offhand, but I think it was an option to the Livecd-to-USB program. I hope this helps.
