I know it successfully wrote the GRUB-PC bootloader to the hard-drive of
the machine being installed-to, because that system worked fine, and the
new system is the one that is initially selected in the GRUB menu (it
used to be a different system).
Whatever happened to the USB drive must have been an error or a
Doing the install with persistent space on the USB drive was initially
very slow, since it appears to re-build the kernel (in this case with a
special nvidia driver), and the I/O on the USB drive is much slower than
hard-disk or RAM-disk.
I first thought it was the result of an I/O error, since the EXT2
file-system built in the persistent space is not a journaling file
system (such as EXT3 or EXT4). Yet I had no cases where I had to power
down the machine I was using it on, and I always brought it down cleanly.
So I re-built the USB drive, which again worked fine, but went bad again
after I finally used it to install.
The same problem happening twice is less likely to be a rare I/O error.
