    Installing Linux to a Flash drive
    Hello everyone!

    I am trying to installing Linux onto a flash drive, I did all the necessary steps that are provided on the linux website everything works well (or so it seems) but after the install is complete it i get a notification that says the flash drive cant be read? does anyone know why this is happening or perhaps another way of doing this (i dont want to use a cd because i dont have any )

    it was FAT, but i cant reformat it to anything else besides mac journaled, i ended up using a different flash drive, hopefully it works, its currently installing the os on it
