I’ve tried several times, the live USB flashdrive (mostly Haiku nightly’s).
The lastest, hrev54963, still gives a problem when booting while the flashdrive is plugged into a USB3 port. I will hang anywhere from the time during seeing the little bootup icons to just the mouse pointer in the middle of the blue screen.
Once I reboot again, it usually will not hang and goes to the desktop just fine.
Other than that, I’ve not really had a chance to ‘use’ this nightly, because what I’d like to do is be able to create a flashdrive from within the booted Haiku, so that I can utilize the whole 64GB flashdrive and not just the 600+MB that installs when creating it in my Linux with dd.
I can find the new, plugged in flashdrive just fine with ‘drivecreate’ (I think it’s called), and even format it to the be fs. I can also mount the Linux sdd that the hrev54963 anyboot iso is on and see it when I ‘open’ that sdd.
The problem is, when it comes to creating the actual flashdrive, I can’t get the app to let me show it where that iso is to use so that Haiku will be able to utilize the whole flashdrive. I can’t download the iso because the live flashdrive I’m using only has room for the 600+/- MB’s already on it.
Can anyone tell me how to get past this ‘problem’ (I hope I explained myself well enough), or let me know that it can’t be done when booting off of a live flashdrive or whatever? I even tried this in a virtual machine on my linux and it is basically the same problem.
I’ve gone by the create and install guide on the Haiku site, step-by-step, but either I’m completely missing something, not comprehending it correctly, or missing something altogether in it. Anyone have any ideas?
