Default OpenBSD USB stick installer boot: 7.1 yes, 7.2 no

A few months ago I'd successfully installed OpenBSD on my laptop. I did it from an image on a USB stick. That was version 7.1

Today I decided to upgrade to 7.2. I decided a clean install was better than an upgrade process, so I downloaded and dd'd an image to a USB stick, just as before. The stick says "No OS" and refuses to do anything.

Tried with 7.1. Stick boots fine.

Tried with 7.2. Stick fails as before.

Tried the 7.2 image in emulation, via qemu. It boots there.

Most unexpected. I've no idea what changed. Has anyone an idea? thank you.
