The USB HDD should be the correct setting. 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.
