No matter which way I produce a live usb, unless I set up a home-rw partition on the hard drive it will not let me login into the Persistent option. System will not recognise the casper-rw or home-rw partitions on the usb stick?
If I do not set up a home-rw partition on the the hard drive, the Persistent boot option always opens at a login screen, at which there is no way to login correctly(or none I have found).
I have used Unetbottin, Live Usb Creator, and diffrent size and brands of USB keys with the same result. I have not used the DD command in the terminal to write the iso to a USB as I cannot figure out how to make it bootable yet.
Currently using a Sandisk USB stick with 5GB Fat32 Boot, 14 Gb ext2 primary casper-rw, and 13gb ext2 primary home-rw.
I can boot into the live version no problem, and it just mounts the other partions as normal, just like it does if I boot into persistent with the home-rw hard drive.
