Or am I crazy?
Have installed Solus freshly 3 times since a year ago. From live usb to target usb. No problem.
Between the last update and my own stupidity, I had to install again. This time successfully to an old usb with bent tines and is ready for the boneyard. (I did not discover the stabler USB's til I went out to the shed).
Trying to get live ISO (both sourced and flashed fresh, on DVD and USB) on a newer stable USB with no success. I have 3 good USB's (non-bent tines) that SOlus does not recognize in installation process.
Tried formatting these babies in fat32, and even ext and lvm to give solus a head start. And every variable has been done to these USBS to get the Solus OS-ready. Solus live only sees the windows HD as the destination for installation in the installation pull-down tab.
This has never happened before.
Why can I not install Solus live to a usb anymore with the USB being the OS? This worked flawlessly the last 3 times and I've done nothing different.
(sorry for dramatic title---don't know what other conclusion to draw at this point. Just read a 2016 post with a person in the same predicament and was told by devs that usbs are not the preferred destination for OS and is hit and miss....so maybe I just lucked out the last 3 times?)
