I too get this, every time I boot. (no USB involved).
It does not seem like if affects the bootup process, but it shows each time I boot (X200 laptop with Libreboot).

After I select where to boot from (hdd), it says:
'error: file '/boot/grub/i386-coreboot/vbe.mod' not found.
'error: file '/boot/grub/i386-coreboot/vga.mod' not found.
Loading Linux 3.2.0-4gnewsense1-amd64 ...
Loading initial ramdisk ...

Press any key to continue..._

I'm running the x64 version of the latest alpha.

Make sure you write the image to the USB drive using cat. See [1] (or alternatively [2]).

gNewSense 3.1 Parkes for AMD64 ISO image gave me this message when I booted the USB flash memory on two different x86 (one AMD64, one Intel 64) computers: "could not find kernel image: /isolinux/vesamenu.c32 boot:"
