USB-HDD installation
« on: July 07, 2021, 01:28:36 PM »
I create a bootable USB flash drive for CorePlus using UNetbootin to install it on another USB flash drive!! I follow every step that mentioned in the website, but second flash drive won't boot at all it seems it is not bootable!!  :-\

I also tried Frugal as installation method but still second flash drive won't boot. I do somethnig wrong? or bootable flash drive that I created with UNetbootin is the only why to using TinyCore from flash drive?  :o

Thank you

I try again and this time follow this https://www.linuxsecrets.com/tinycorelinux-wiki/wiki:install_usb.html

I have not any working CD drive so I use another flash drive.

Formatting Options: Select ext2.
What's is your recommended media, flash drive or microSD card?

Boot options: waitusb=5
(note: waitusb=5:UUID=“xxxxxx-xxxxxx” bootcode is automatically added when a removable drive is connected)
Everytime I try to install, always this field is empty on my system.

Remember to remove the CD.
I remove the flash drive(Live) to boot the system using the second flash drive but it won't detected!!

I'm so sorry for too many question  :-[ Could you help me, please, where is my mistake  :-\

Since you have a live USB that boots, maybe this would be better:

Select  Frugal, Whole Disk, Install boot loader.
Select ext4.
Unless you know you need a boot code, skip step 4.
Select  Core and X/GUI Desktop.
Click  Proceed.
