Unable To Redirect Installation to sdc1

Post#1 by jimwg » 06 Jul 2017, 17:07

Greetings!

Following instructions to letter on https://www.maketecheasier.com/install- ... usb-drive/ (installing via ./Porteus-installer-for-Linux.com) but when I get to the pre-install screen it states ready to install om sdb1 and not sdc1 as I desire. I see no means to retarget the installation. I'm installing Porteus from Mint 18 (on a Win7 partitioned drive) to a 32gig flash partitioned with 1 2gig FAT partition and a 26gig EXT4 partition.

Thanks for any hints!

where does mint mount sdc1? is it in /mnt or somewhere else?
because the installer.com requires mounting to be in /mnt..

Code: Select all

sudo mkdir /mnt/sdc1
sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/sdc1
cd /mnt/sdc1/boot
