USB eject how to

L4 Transporter

How do I umount my USB stick from the palo once I'm done using it as a bootstrapper?  I can bootstrap just fine from the box, but for whatever reason I'm failing to find documentation on how to successfully and safely remove the USB once I'm done.  I want to make sure I don't nuke a known good formatted USB bootstrapper.  Any ideas?  I don't think there is a umount cmd on the box that I can see? Thanks for any feedback.

Once the bootstrap is done and you've booted into PAN-os I've always just yanked it out, not sure if that's the right process but I've never had any ill-effects because of it. 

that is what i was worried about- the illl effects.  Worried I'm going to nuke that thing some day and not know it, and give it to someone to deploy and watch it not work.
