I have a HP Windows 10 laptop which I usually boot CloudReady from USB using install image. It has a built in solid state disk which is not user accessible unlike disks are on most laptops. It has a SD slot but does not seem to be able to boot from so USB boot is the only option as I occasionally need Windows.
Instead of using the install image I tried to "install" to a 32GB USB but this failed on both 32GB devices I tried the first being a Sandisk so went and bought a different make but that behaved the same. It installs partition 27,26,25,24 then for 23 gives "Doing slow misaligned DD operation" error but seems to complete operation. It then creates 22, 21 then on 20 gives same DD error but copies 3.2GB of data then stops for a minute or two and reboots. It does exactly the same on three totally different PCs. The only success was when I installed to a SD card which was bootable in a SD slot and USB adaptor.
The reason for doing this was so I could update to the latest version instead of doing a new install. However a search found an old post which said that "Update" is disabled on a USB device. Is this still true when "Installed" to USB as there is a switch to enable install to USB?
