In my case changing to a newer Pendrive solved the issue.

Just for anyone else who got here at 1 a.m. - i encountered this message when trying to boot from a USB Boot Drive plugged into a USB3 port. Moving the drive to a USB2 port fixed the issue without any other fixes. I'm guessing that something in the boot sequence had re-labelled or disabled the USB3 port.
