So I'm tying to copy the iso to a USB using ./usb_inst.sh and as soon as I select my usb it
Quote:
Installation on /dev/sdb in progress
│ details will be written in /var/tmp/usb_inst.log
│ * Writing MBR on /dev/sdb


Then it drops out of the script, has this happened to anyone else before? Any idea why it isn't completing?

Bad USB stick, probably.

I can confirm this isn't the case, I've tried several different USB sticks now and they all work fine. But the install script drops on all of them

I have, and I found a work around.

Install the new System Rescue CD from windows or from an old or CD System Rescue CD. I know, that isn't very satisfying and there must be something that can be "fixed" in Gentoo to get it to work. But I don't know what it is and I don't have any guesses.

Method A) works in Gentoo, that's what I always use.
