    Why not just try it (Has anyone installed 13.1 to a USB drive ?), then tell us how it goes?

    It is not much different than installing elsewhere.

    You have to be careful of fstab entries, choose identifiers that do not
    change with connection. Ditto for grub. Also be careful that grub does
    not installs elsewhere.

    I have installed to an external hard drive, but not to a flash drive. But it should be the same, except the flash drive will be slower. Details of my install.
    openSUSE Leap 15.3; KDE Plasma 5.18.6;

    hi,

    new install of openSUSE13.1 was made on a USB 32GB Verbatim memory stick from iso DVD

    HW: hp-Pavilion-g7-2248sg laptop having UEFI bios and openSUSE13.1 already installed on HDD,
    (window8 deleted on previous install of openSUSE12.3),
    CPU: AMD A8-4500M (X4), AMD Radeon HD 7640G graphics, 4GB RAM,

    no problems encountered on the install,
    secure boot works ok with authorised kernels, (installed via yast)
    otherwise secure boot needs to be deselected in bios

    usage: back-up OS in case of update/finger problems

    hth

    PS. its slow compared to external USB HDD
