Exclamation Slackware [iso] Install from Slax

Hi guys...

I finished organizing my partitions to install slackware.

I dont have windows anymore, Im using Slax as my OS from my usb at the moment.

I want to install Slackware to my SATA (partition already made) using unetbootin because I only have the iso image of the DVD.

Im facing the issue that when I choose HDD it points to / only and that is the USB. It doesnt allow me to point to any other partition.

How do I fix that??
I mean my USB wont handle the extraction of 4GB and the setup actually modifies my mbr so my slax wont boot anymore if I allow the change...

Any suggestions??
