USB Works - Does not Show as a install target

Recommended Posts

Yo. SanDisk bombed on me (kinda worked great for a while) and I finally bought a replacement from Sebkinne at DerbyCon. Nice silver USB stick w/Hak5 logo. :)

ANywho I formatted 3GB of the USB stick as ext4, and the rest (831MB-ish) as swap. Works great. Problem is I can't seem to get it to show as an install target, only "Internal Storage" shows up. Thoughts?

I filled the filesystem just with logs a couple times already so I'm getting desperate for space ;)
