I booted from a live usb of Ubuntu 15.10 and tried to install it on another 16 gig Transcend flash drive. Made a root and a swap partition. I explicity set the bootloader installion to /dev/sdb (16gig Transcend).
But after the install, grub got installed on my laptop's hard drive and the system got installed on the flash drive.
The drive boots off of my laptop but not any other one. And if I go into the boot menu of my laptop(running windows 8) without inserting the flash drive, it shows an extra grub option, which wasn't there before. So I'm fairly certain that the installer went crazy and installed grub there instead of the flash drive.
I've tried this at least 5 times now but I get the same thing.
How can I fix this? Any and all help is appreciated.
