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 )
