I want to install(no to create LiveUSB) PCLinuxOS 2011.9 LXDE on the USB Flash Drive PQI Cool Drive U339S.
I use IBM T41 Notebook computer, but i have a big problem, when I try to install PCLinuxOS on the USB Flash.
I don't see the USB drive in Disk Manager in the Control Center, but it's listed in detected hardware in Hardware Manager as sda (because I tried to install without HDD in the laptop) The only message that I got in the Control center->Disk Manager was NO HARD Drives found. It seems that the setup program cannot find any HDD/USB Flash regardless of fact that USB Flash is inserted in the Hi-Speed USB port(I have two USB 2.0 ports)
Make liveUSB reports that couldn't find USB Flash drive. The flash drive is in the perfect contition, it works fine in Windows. When I insert the USB Flash, when I have booted PCLinuxOS LiveCD, it detects my USB Flash, I can list the contents, I can delete or add files on the flash drive, but only this.Neither I can install on the usb flash, nor to create live usb. Both utilities doesn't recognize my USB Flash, and can't do anything.
I'll be glad if someone could help me to install the distro on the Flash drive
PS. On the other, very Old PC with Pentium3, 384RAM, the liveUSB recognize my USB Flash drive, but the installer doesn't recognize the drive and the Disk Manager doesn't recognize the drive-It gives me-No hard drives found...
