Problem Installing Fedora 27 To USB HDD

asked 2018-04-02 07:45:06 -0500

I have successfully installed Fedora 27 on a USB 3.0 flash drive. When my computer starts and I use the appropriate keys to select a bootable device, the flash drive shows up in the list along with two USB 2.0 HDDs that don't have anything bootable on them.

I just bought a USB 3.0 HDD and want to install Fedora 27 on it. During the installation setup, I select the drive, reclaim all storage on the drive, and install. No problems are reported during the installation. When I boot, this drive does not appear in the list of bootable devices.

Also, if I boot from the USB flash drive, the USB 2.0 HDDs are mounted, but the new USB 3.0 HDD is not.

What can I do to make the new drive bootable?

Did you select this USB 3.0 disk to install bootloader on it?

When you boot from flash drive, can you still manually mount USB 3.0 disk?
