I am trying to install GhostBSD into a 16 GB USB drive.
The computer is a Thinkpad X40 where the USB live image of GhostBSD runs correctly: Xorg OK. Sound OK.
The computer doesn't have a working hard drive, and thus the USB drive the only option I have to boot and exploit the hardware.
Using GhostBSD installer I have tried several times to make this 16 GB USB drive my booting device. I noticed that to perform a successful installation I had to first unmount the USB drive.
. Nonetheless, after terminating the installation process that takes around 3 h, after rebooting the 16GB USB drive is not recognized by the hardware as booting device, or as drive what so ever, in contrast to the live image, that is correctly recognized and that can boot the computer.
Importantly, when booting with the live image of GhostBSD, the 16 GB USB drive, where GhostBSD is installed, is successfully mounted and open - I see all the folders and the content is ok.
Is there anything I can do to render this installation bootable? is this an issue that someone has also reported?
Thank you for this great desktop solution for BSD.
