Hi Aere,

The first attempt failed:

Installed Unetbootin and copied the Lubuntu 15.04 desktop 32-bit iso
file into a live 14.04.2 LTS system.

Made a new MSDOS partition table and a FAT32 partition in a Sandisk
Cruzer 4 GB drive. Tried with maximum available file for persistence.

The installation proceeded without hiccups, but the installed system
does not work. I get into Busybox and it complains that /dev/loop0 can
not be mounted on //filesystem.squashfs: No such device :-(

Best regards
