Hey all, I'm looking to get back in to using Gentoo (have taken a hiatus from it and anything Linux related for a while) and I want to use the LiveDVD to boot into a usable GUI but from a USB stick instead of DVD (USB is faster, doesn't require me to waste a disc) and was wondering what I need to do to make this possible. I've got the ISO 'burned' to a 4GB USB drive, and it boots okay (lets me select keymap) until some point where it just craps out looking for the boot medium. Anyway to make it so it remembers it's booting off a USB stick?

so using Etcher to burn the image to usb won't work? I'm coming from a Windows environment, not another Linux environment.

Probably you can burn livedvd to usb but no idea how to in windows. With systemrescuecd you have the steps for creating usb from windows
