telot Posted March 2, 2012 Share Posted March 2, 2012 Pretty basic stuff, but I thought I'd stem a bunch of questions from the windows users or whatever with a quicky guide on partitioning a usb thumbdrive for use with the markIV. Download BT5R1 and burn the .iso to a CD. I use deepburner in windows to accomplish this. Put it in and boot it up and startx after logging in (uname/pass=root/toor) Once your in the GUI open a terminal and type: apt-get install gparted Then, after its installed, plug in your thumbdrive and type: gparted & That will launch the creamy gui of gparted. From the top right dropdown menu select your thumb drive from the list and click the big center box that contains the drive size information. Then click "Delete" button on the top near the left. Then click the "New" button on the top far left. Select Primary and EXT4 from the drop downs. Click OK or whatever and then click "Apply" (the big green checkmark). Enjoy! telot Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
