    I have had problems with using stuff from PendriveLinux.com myself.
    So have many others.

    You should have no problem removing casper-rw partition from the HDD. Use Gparted.

    You should be able to simply shrink, (to the left), the FAT32 partition on the flash drive and create a new ext2 partition labeled casper-rw.

    Probably better to start over following my advice above.

    I'm falling in love with this program, its an amazing partition manager.

    Yep, already done.

    Probably better to start over following my advice above.
    I'm going to test it out after I delete that partition from my HDD, I'll probably mark this thread as solved if it works.

    Alright, it finally worked. For anyone looking this up in the future

    The Problem: The live USB program created the casper-rw partition on the HDD instead of the flash drive. And apparently Ubuntu likes using that casper-rw partition better than the flash drive one if both exist.

    The solution: Create the casper-rw partition manually on the flash drive, and delete the one stored on the HDD.
