Title: Assistance creating boot media for Intel Compute Stick
Post by: ChameleonQueue on December 17, 2018, 01:42:49 PM
So I have used TC in the past and loved it. I am now trying to install it on an Intel Compute Stick and am having issues.

If its known that this device and OS mix is just a no go, that's fine, just let me know.

So from what I can tell, my external media's have to be GPT in order to be seen by the BIOS. Are there any tried and trusted methods for getting TC on a GPT USB? I normally use Rufus, but it doesn't give me the option for GPT, only MBR.

you could try hybrid methods
eg

Use the gdisk extension with one of your previous tinycore installations to format the usb stick.

TinyCorePure64 is the one you want to use with a Computestick.

If you use that, then Rufus will give you the GPT option.  Despite this, I've had problems getting that to boot on the 'sticks.  I run some older and some newer sticks.

You may want to look into a solution I describe here - instead of Rufus, use YUMI-UEFI.  They are slightly different tools:

This puts everything on an external usb stick, perhaps hanging off a 4-port hub, and doesn't touch the existing Windows install.
