Mounting flash drive in SimplyMEPIS

I tried to install SimplyMEPIS from DVD ISO image using installer in distro - formatted flash drive to ext3 and installed it with no problems but when I tried to run it from flash drive I got following message:
Error 17 - Cannot mount selected partition
Tried Google and tried several solutions I found on-line but nothing works.
What I need to do to mount flash drive and run it from it?
I'm newbie to Linux.
Thx guys

Which SimplyMEPIS? (7, 8, or ??)

How many bits? (i.e. 32 or 64?)
