Thread: USB stick install

  1. #1

    Default USB stick install

    Hello, I downloaded the openSUSE-13.1-DVD-i586 iso file to my hard drive and installed the image writer.
    I am unable to select the USB stick when I select the copy button. There is nothing to select.

    I used these the instructions to create a live usb stick using windows but I
    get to the point where using the image write wants to use the usb stick.
    I select down arrow tab next to the copy tab but there is nothing to select.
    Also tried closing explorer windows and running as administrator. No luck
    with the mountvol command either. I am using Windows 8.1 and this
    comes with Net 4. Are there settings for Net 4 to activate it? Does the
    usb stick need to be formatted specifically. Briefly look at the diskpart
    command in troubleshooting section but this did not display the usb drive
    either. What needs to be done to allow the image writer to select the usb
    stick as a target?

    I wonder if you are following the correct instructions: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Create_a..._using_Windows because these describe how to format the USB stick if you run into problems.

    I am having the same problems with the install to usb stick with windows 7. The format instructions do not work as claimed. I get access denied when I do this command mountvol driveletter: /d
