Seems that bios informs loader (I mean boot0) about drive but loader itself can't proceed, like it can't access the drive/partition. If the drive is plugged in the USB 2 the boot proceeds ok. I don't know if it is a real issue. It may be a motherboard problem. I don't have another hardware with USB 3 to test.

Not a Boot Order setting in your BIOS by chance? I have some Dells and 
other custom machines that will do this if Boot Other Device / Boot 
External Device is before HD or CD/DVD drive in Boot Order setting and 
it will just sit there at black screen with no error.
