I have a 1TB WD Passport. I made a 20GB partition, formatted to FAT, for a persistent live Ubuntu install. The rest I formatted as NTFS, to be used for backups.
I made the 20GB live install with Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator. The entire drive was previously formatted with Ubuntu Disk Utility; 20GB FAT, Remainder NTFS.
Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator ran with no errors. However, when I boot, and select the WD Passport as the first boot disk I get a black screen with a cursor in the corner.
Is there something special I have to do to boot from this partition?
Here is the partition table from the hard drive:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 * 63 39070079 19535008+ 83 Linux /dev/sdb2 39070080 1953455804 957192862+ 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
