Wolfgang I have got to making the partition and in Computer > drive letter I see the Linux listed and yet in Partition Wizard I see nothing - see pics I have added all which are relevant.

When I was going through the process I did have a little window to say that it would not be bootable and I don't know what that was all about because I hit OK and it continued on.

So I think I may have done something wrong but what??

Hmm, that is a good one. Did you check the box where the arrow points. It looks like your stick is not formatted correctly.

Ah my mistake Wolfgang I didn't move that slider I will reformat that drive using PW to make it FAT32 as it came up as exFAT (Default) or something like that with the Windows feature - then I will reinstall that Linux on it - sorry and thanks for the heads up.

You don't have to reformat it. Just check that box where the arrow points and it will be formatted. That's the better solution.

PS - if you don't hear from me for a while, I am going to bed. It is past 1AM.

Ok mate I did that and the "install" stalls at what you see in the pic - have tried it twice now and it just stops at where I indicate. The boxes at the bottom you can see are greyed out??

Ok Wolfgang I will let it run for the rest of this evening just the greying out threw me a bit.
