    This also works pretty well on SD cards as well. A lot of card readers show up as USB drives. Plus, persistance and fast booting off of a tiny device is pretty cool. (Plus, it's easy to find a little USB dongle that converts a SD card to a flash drive.)

    Sorry for the delay in posting, didn't see this one.

    You can use any partition scheme and format you want.
    Making it compatible is another story.
    So I would suggest you determine what it is you want to do.

    I think unetbootin should work under osx but i could be wrong. Regardless if it does or not the workaround would be to boot off the dvd, install unitbootin, then just do it that way.

    Anyways i just wanted to chime in and say that not only have i done this on my usb ... but i also decided after borking my hard drive install 3 times, to give it a go on there aswell.

    Works perfectly and i just tar my changes folder after every major update to the system. Oh and i guess i should say make sure you change it to sda rather than sdb as i was scratching my head for about 30min trying to get it to work.
    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.

    u can try this method, iunno for sure if it will work or not but it might. follow the tutorial, then on bootup, hold the option button on ur keyboard and it should bring up a boot menu like thing where u can select to boot from external usb.

    Hi guys, I managed to finally get BT4 on usb working, unfortunately when it booted up
    Kde 3.5 launched and the whole BT4 layout of tools / menus changed.
    I possibly created a user first, this may have been the problem. Another point, manually starting networking and x on each boot is a bit of a pain, anyway great distro guys.

    Default how much space for persistent change partition

    hi everyone

    i've got a 16 gb usb

    i'm going to partition it
    however, i want to leave some "space for windows to use"

    my plan isaround 15 gb usable in my usb)
    4 gb for BT4
    1 gb for persistent change partition for BT4
    10 gb (the rest) for windows to use

    because windows can't recognize ext3 without any tools

    so is 1 gb enough???

    Shouldn't you know what is best for your situation in this instance?
    1GB means just that, you will have 1GB to save data on.

    thanks archangel.amael,

    oic, so i'll leave more space for that

    by the way, is 4 gb for backtrack too much? since I want to also install BT5, BT6... in this partition in the future too

    one last thing, should i use ext2 or ext3 for persistent change partition? since the original essay says i should use ext3 instead, however, here it says ext2...
