I found out how to get around it, what i did was put the package collection on an sd card and download it from there

I have a similar issue with a live image I downloaded in January 2017 and installed to USB with uneetbootin and a slackware 64 current installation on a laptop.
I've partitioned the hdd so as to have efi on sda1, / on sda2, other partitions for /var, /usr, etc
I worked out that to try in the setup2hd utility to target a partition with /usr automatically starts the install stage.
Same again when targeting /var to a partion.
As a work around I made the / partition bigger so as to incorporate /usr
The partition that was meant for /usr is now much smaller and targets /usr/local (that did not kickoff the install stage)
Then targeted the last remaining partition as /var which kicked off the install stage.
There were some error that appeared which did not stop the installation:
"rsync: write failed on "setup2hd/usr/share/locale/(can't see what's in here from the pic taken)/LC/MESSAGES/": No space left on device (28)"
the utility then asked kept on gong until it reached 100% which were followed by other questions to make the system bootable and it did find /dev/sda1.
On reboot, it loaded the original 14.2 lilo.conf and kernels prior to this upgrade but nothing towards the 64 current install.
I may have to go back to try and burn the dvd to disc instead of a usb and see how this goes.
Interestingly now that I'm posting this from the live usb, i cannot see anything on the / target partition /dev/sda2

root@darkstar:/# mount
none on / type tmpfs (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
