Install Question - booting from USB

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

So, i have just successfully installed XPEnology on my HP54l and its running all ok, quite an achievement seeing as im a total noob at all this!

 

I followed this guide..

What I would like to know is if there is anyway for the OS on the USB to run on the HD in the HP54l instead of running off the USB stick?

 

thanks

Ok, so what would you suggest i do to make it all load from a HD?[/quote

I don't suggest it. Leave a small USB flash drive plugged in for reboots and don't waste your time on something not important.

Oh right, i thought i read some where that it would install everything across the HD's so you wouldn't need a usb stick.

As USB sticks dont last forever and have a habit of dieing

USB Stick will read-only on every reboot. Nothing written on it after initial creation. It will last many lifetimes in this usage.

And just to add - it will probably outlast the HDDs, which is kind of the point of this setup. More redundancy is good!
