Error message "device descriptor read / 64, error -71" while booting is caused by USB device that is not recognized correctly and will not work until reconnected.

To solve this append following to the command line of the kernel:

usbcore.autosuspend=-1 usbcore.old-scheme-first=1

Hope this helps

Please report this to the kernel bugzilla with the device's usb id(s) as well, so that future kernels can recognize that device as needing those options.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
