Anybody experice, to install Haiku on an USB-stick?
Currently I have only burned Haiku on DVD and I have written it to an USB-stick with “dd”:
The advantage: I know what “dd” do, that there don’t do something wrong.
The disadvantage: The Anyboot-images are limited on size, because it must fit on a DVD, too. So, if the USB stick have 16 GB or more, the partition using only a little part of the USB space.
And with GPated (the current version, don’t support BeFS) I can see, how little the partition is.
But there is an additional possibility to bring Haiku on an USB-stick:
The advantage: Then the full USB-stick space will be used.
The disadvantage currently: I never have used it. I fear, that the installer could write the partition with its filesystem on the USB-stick, but the MBR on the harddrive.That would be a disaster.
So, have anybody tried out to install Haiku on an USB-stick?
And do you can say, that the installer don’t modify the hard drive, when I select the USB-drive?
