I don't know that this bug is exactly the same I cannot dd an anyboot image to a USB stick. I can initialise and format it then copy files to it, to test and it is alright. You are trying to use the installer. I don't know exactly how the installer goes about it. Does it make an image first?

On second thoughts the bug is probably not the same.

Replying to bruno:

Anyone else having problems makeing a USB-Stick?

Using Installer I only managed to create a booting USB stick, by formatting the raw device directly in DriveSetup, i.e. don't initialize the disk with a partition map a don't create a partition.

I also tried creating partition map and partition and installed the boot manager after using Installer. The boot menu is reached, but no Haiku found on the stick (unfortunately I forgot the exact error message...). I ended up automatically in the boot options screen where I could select the Haiku installs I have on the internal harddisk.
