I have a 64gb flash drive. I want to set it up so I can use it for windows-accessible Fat32 data storage while also being able to boot to it using a large (20-30gb) persistent
openSUSE live USB installation. Does anybody know how I can go about creating this sort of setup?
I know about
live-fat-stick, the problem is that this only allows installations that are up to 4gb in size, which is about a factor of 5 too small.
suse studio image writer formats the entire drive, and although it has a partition that would normally be readable on windows, that partition is at the end and windows can only read the first partition in a removable device.
Edit: To be a bit more specific, I want to divide my 64 gb drive into two sections of roughly 32 gb each. The first is for file storage and should be accessible by both Windows and Linux (including android). The second is a bootable, persistent 64 bit openSUSE 13.2 installation. Whether these are separate partitions or not, and what the partition format(s) are isn't really that important. The USB drive is is
/dev/sdb on my computer, but I can't guarantee it will be seen as
/dev/sdb on all computers I might use it on.
Edit 2: I want to be able to use the file storage part on any Windows or Linux computer. On my own computers, there are other solutions I can use for moving files around (like network storage). So a solution that requires me to install additional software on any computer I want to use the flash drive with won't work. I can install whatever software I need on the computer I will use to set up the flash drive, but on other computers the solution should work natively. Neither will a solution that requires administrator access on any computer I want to use the flash drive with.
