I am not able to install it. I ran TC install, selected USB-HDD, selected sda partition (which is the USB because that laptop has no HDD).
The problem is, I am not able to unmount sda partition from the unmount tool. I press on it, it remains mounted.

Did you try to do unmount when you are running TC Live ?

Don't run tc-install on the USB you booted from. Manually place the new kernel and new core.gz in a separate folder in the USB and configure bootloader to run the new ones so that if any problem occurs, you can boot back into TC 7.

If you are trying to install to the same partition on the usb stick you booted from, you will not be able to un-mount it.

Alternatively you could replace core.gz and vmlinuz from here:

If I install tinycore on a USB drive, connect another one while in live mode, run tc install to the other one. Will it work?

1 more question: Does tiny core plus have video playback support (with sound of course)?

Yes.

Install alsa or pulseaudio (for sound).
Play videos in vlc (or a web browser if you don't like vlc). Then, videos play.
