    Angry bootable backtrack on thmbdrive


    Hi..! Once Backtrack is booted up, I find an executable to install Backtrack. When I double click on it to kick it off, it don't respond at all. I'm trying to install Backtrack on a 2gig thumbdrive, but, it's not happening for me. Has anybody ran into this before? If so, how did you overcome it? Thanks..!

    Have a look to this manual http://www.offensive-security.com/do...hd-install.pdf

    it's not a matter of a executable file, there is some procedures should be done manually to create partition and FS type before running
    K -> System -> Backtrack Installer.

    Have you tried to use Flashboot to install BackTrack?

    I believe that the easiest way to install BackTrack on a thumbdirve is thru Flashboot . Give it a try and let me know, if it work'd for you.
