I have an old laptop that needs CloudReady, but is not concerned with performance. Problem is that it lacks a working hard drive. I currently have it running of an installer USB stick, which is sort of OK, but not quite. I would like to install to a USB stick.
First thing I figured out is that my available sticks are max 8GB, which is too small. So I got a bigger one, which is running into other problems. After wiping the file system, I still get a fatal error, but I believe it is a bug in the installer script. The command I used is
$ sudo /usr/sbin/chromeos-install --yes --skip_dst_removable --dst /dev/sdc
and the traceback points to:
subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command '['/usr/bin/cgpt', 'show', '/dev/sda']' returned non-zero exit status 1
The laptop I am doing this install in, indeed has a HDD (/dev/sda) but since it is not mentioned in the installer command, the installer script has no business looking there. So... what gives?
