I don't need a live USB, I want to install a full version on a 16GB USB stick I have. I was told by someone on this forum to partition to 4 different partitions:
8GB FAT32 for Windows
4GB EXT4 for /
3 GB EXT2 for /home (to make future backups easy
I have used fdisk, Gparted, the partition program during the install but can't get past setting the EXT4 on the USB. I have even tried to install it on one partition (15GB EXT4 and 1 GB swap) by choosing the erase the hole thing and use the whol edrive. I had taken the hard drive out of my laptop and used the USB stick as the only attached storage device.
As soon as I boot the computer from the live CD and try to full install a full copy on the stick, it stalls and says that it was unable to set partition table EXT4. It doesn't matter if I start from a FAT32 stick or format it in gParted or Fdisk to have an EXT4. Any idea?
