I'm trying to install Arch on a flash drive. To do so, I'm trying to first get a bootable, "live" version of Arch on the flash drive I'm going to install it on later.
I've followed the instructions here to the letter, but for some reason, the Mac's bootloader doesn't recognize the flash drive at all, and it's not showing up on my desktop as an external storage device.
It does, however, show up in Disk Utility, and when I run diskutil list in the terminal. Attempts to mountDisk are failing repeatedly, both from the terminal and GUI disk utilities.
To clarify: I'm able to mount the disk (as in,
/dev/disk2, but not the logical volume, i.e.
disk2s2, which contains Archboot).
This, in turn, prevents the bootloader from detecting the flash drive as a bootable volume.
I have already asked this question on Ask Different, but it doesn't seem likely that I'll get much help with it there.
Has anyone else here had this issue? How did you fix it?
