Hi xboxown,

You have to pardon my icaros 2.0 ignorance as it is so fresh that i still haven't figured out where everything is located :D

In the old 1.5 2 icaors desktop manual there is a special chapter about installing icaros to a USB pen-drive.

You have two options:

Either install icaros as 'real' os (can be a full icaros install) and boot your pendrive on the machine you want to install icaros to. then you can run the installer. This will give you a bare minimum AROS installation on the machine (depending on your pendrive installation), but you can add files from the iso (manually and at any time).

The second option is to create a special install usb pendrive (also described in icaros desktop 1.5.2 manual). This installs a bare minimal icaros to the pendrive, but in opposite to the earlier mentioned method will contains all installation files (archives). You boot that pendrive on the machine on which you want to install aros and run the installation as well. Because it contains all the installation files, you do not have to manually add files, and if everything goes alright will install icaros completely to your machine.

In addition to that (which i initially forgot to write) is that you need to find a wy to install to the pendrive to begin with. Amigamia already pointed out a relevant thread. In short, boot from your dvd/cd, insert pendrive and install to the pendrive, or as i usual do i install icaros firstly into a virtual machine and install to a pendrive from there.

Reason to do the latter is because i can use a much more powerful machine to do that and also gives me an opportunity to check out aros/icaros in a nice protected environment.

Strictly technically speaking you could also reach the same goal by using the qemu virtualization that is accompanied with the icaros dvd archive (.exe which is actually a .7z file which can be extracted and contains qemu as well). But i hardly use qemu myself. Th process is described either in the icaros desktop manual, on icarosdesktop.org blog or aros-exec.org forums (sorry, i don't recall where exactly).

(please do note amigamia's thread and wiping your pendrive in case of troubles. few people experience this issue).

In the hope its helpfull,
