It is impossible to validate the USB stick. The image file can be
validated before it is placed on the USB stick, but not later — at least
on the lives, after the first boot, its partition table is modified,
adding a writeable partition. Thus changed, it no longer can pass the
check, which anyways, only tests CD/DVDs.
I don’t know if they can redesign the test, or at least give a message
that USB sticks can’t be tested.
The actual image can be different for each class of device. the test is for CD/DVD only. That is mainly because burning a dvd/cd is just not all the reliable. Copying an image to a drive is very reliable.
