I have version 5.0.3 on a 2GB memory stick. I can boot a Thinkpad T61 fine from it, but a W500 (one model newer) will not boot from the USB device. The W500 boots fine from other USB devices

Try the latest alpha/beta/RC version of UBCD. For the download, check the "announcements" section of the forum.

This is partially fixed with the new version. It will now boot from USB on the W500, but it will hang if you try to run Drive Fitness Test
