I’m running on a Mac Pro which I can dual boot with Windows. I figured it’d be good to install Linux (Ubuntu) on a USB stick, just to try it out - so I followed some instructions that I found here:-
The above link uses balenaEtcher to write Ubuntu onto a USB stick (after first downloading an ISO file). Ubuntu’s ISO file was huge (over 2GB) so I chose an 8GB USB stick and formatted it in accordance with the above instructions.
But by the end of the process, Etcher had created a tiny partition on the USB stick of just 2MB (megabytes - not gigabytes). This tiny partition contains just 2 x files, called bootx64.efi and grubx64.efi and the rest of the USB stick seems to have been left empty (in fact, unformatted).
So I’m just wondering where Etcher put the rest of the Ubuntu files?? Ubuntu can’t possibly fit into 2MB but I’d be surprised (and disappointed) if Etcher’s written it all to my Mac’s hard drive…
