After distro install to USB, install skipped for Windows
Normally, I just install Linux straight to USB mem-sticks as if they were hard drives, but lately, this has not worked out well. The latest LMDE RC, for example, also doesn't boot after installing using either the "normal" install method or when using UNetbootin.
When I reboot after installation is done, the computer goes straight to booting Windows, so I checked the BIOS and the boot order is still correct. I used Boot-Repair to reinstall GRUB onto the mem-stick in sdx, just to be sure, and nothing changed. It's as if the memory stick does not exist, when booting. So I have used different mem-sticks. No deal. I've tried other distros. No deal, so I am completely baffled as to what is going on.
After trying a few times, I used GParted to look at the new installs and the installer is not doing what I tell it to do for designating where / and /home should be. I set it for the two partitions, but after installing, they aren't specified.
I have no idea why this is happening. Can anyone else think of something to get it working?
Is there a way to set / and /home, and maybe swap, after an install fails?
