Wow! It seems the day of light for Icaros Desktop Stick is finally coming...


I think I'll be available to pay a reasonable amount for a copy of Icaros Desktop on a USB stick, and probably I'm not alone.

Do you boot AROS with SFS filesystem? AROS with its low file access rate (compared to windoze and others that constantly read/writes some #OOPS# on the HD ), surly will feel pretty snappy on USB2 speeds


Yes, it uses SFS. The speed seems roughly similar to HD.

Installation to USB drives should work in tomorrow's build (2010-03-09). You use the same Installer as for HD, but there's a new option to choose a USB drive.

@DizzyOfCRN

I presume you used a personal build.

Yes I tried it with a personal build, I could just not wait... I let the Aros installer make the partition on a 8GB kingston stick, formated the newly made partition with the shell, copied manually all the files from HD and manually installed grub2

Does this means you can boot Aros from an USB hard disk as well?

It should, but it isn't tested.

I tried my usb Aros on my workplace machine and it did indeed boot, but it may be because I just copied files from HD installation that it hung and asked for DH0.

I was in a hurry to get to work when the personal build was done and I messed something with the instalAros and I could not get it to co-operata so I just copied the files manually...

But this is NICE! Good job!

Hi

I did a quick try with latest nightly with vmware player. When I chose the USB key, should I also change the device number? If so, how can I check what device number each drive have? I have tried both assign and the info command from CLI.

This was only a five minutes try, before going to work

I can't wait to come home and test this out later!
