1: Occasionally, a USB drive will not work; other times the boot partition read speed may be very slow (1kbps). In these cases, we recommend trying another USB Drive.
2: You can use the USB 2.0 port, but the length of time you need to wait will depend upon the speed of the USB drive being used for recovery.
