Re: How to resize the IMG USB Live-Debian pendrive ?
I came across this somewhat stale thread after encountering the same
problem, and have a klutzy solution:
The OP's problem, which I think was the same as mine although perhaps
not fully explained, was this. Creating a bootable flash drive in the
recommended way by dd'ing from debian-live*.img, creates a partition
little larger than required for the system files. Since Windows does
not appear capable of recognizing more than one partition on a USB flash
drive, this leaves the rest of the drive unusable for Windows access. I
like to be able to view all the files from Windows and back them up on
a large NTFS drive, so I want to make the whole flash drive a single FAT
I tried resizing the partition with gparted, but that rendered the flash
drive unbootable. I then ran the Windows program syslinux.exe (there is
a linux equivalent) to make the flash drive bootable again. This
worked, though the configuration menu apparently got replaced so that I
now have to type "live" when the boot prompt appears.
I expect that someone can offer a less klutzy fix.
