what about FAT32? – Garry Aug 9 '10 at 9:53
@Garry what about it? – kotekzot Apr 10 '12 at 19:10

Some options include:

  • Disabling the HDDs in the bios.
  • Unplugging them.
  • Making a custom live cd that has the behavior you want.
  • Downloading an alternate live cd that has the behavior you want.
  • Seeing if the live cd has some startup options allowing you to configure it how you want.
