You should try with a more recent version of mindi + mondo. Look at ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org for that. (2.0.9 + 1.0.9 are the current ones)

A similar bug has been fixed in rev [148] Could you provide the result of lsmod on your original system and check which modules are need to support your USB configuration.

Then check that they are decalred in mindi by doing: grep USB_MODS /usr/sbin/mindi

If there are some missing please report them here.

Kubuntu unaltered module list attached - looks like they throw the kitchen sink at it :-)

I'm not 100% sure I can identify all the related modules, my best guess is

evdev, usbcore, usbhid, ehci_hcd, uhci_hcd

If I grep mindi as you suggest I see

usb-storage, usb-ohci, usb-uhci, usbcore, 
usb_storage, hid,      uhci_hcd, ehci_hcd, 
uhci-hcd,    ehci-hcd, usbkbd

Two things I can see here:

  1. evdev is not in mindi
  2. it's usbhid in Kubuntu and hid in mindi

I'll try the newer versions of mondo + mindi from the ftp site next.
