|Have you verified that your bios can boot from removal usb drive? |
Using grub hard drive install script will write grub into MBR on the installing system, not good for a removal device. Using lilo writes in the target partition. It would require that your bios will allow you to change the active boot partition to usb, which is doubtful as again this is a removal device.
The 4.0 grub pendrive install scripts forces grub to be written into sda1.
Since you are trying to install to a removal device, you will likely need to do manual install of grub for your particular setup and hopefully your bios is capable of booting from such usb device.
It is supported by the bios, but I suppose I can try my drive on another machine just to double check.
I think I only tried the 4.0 lilo pendrive install. But it seemd te pendrive install indiciated it was an install "from" a pendrive?
