Ahh! sweet. Well let's hope it boots up correctly >.<

let me know and we'll try formatting it again... then see if it works AFTER a reboot.

Right. I've tried having a bash at setting the USB ports too 1.1, unplugged & then replugged the USB drive. I did
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
it never picked it up. So I rebooted, had to do the REIUSB trick, and then did the sudo command again. Still hasn't picked it up :(

OK, I'm beginning to think the USB stick is buggered, leave it with me and I'll see if I can find any other solutions
