XenServer 6.5 on an 8GB USB Boot drive



  • So I ordered a few 8GB thumb drives as I was certain it was possible to install XenServer 6.5 to them, yet I'm not.

    I've followed the guide that Citrix has and even they say you need a 16GB thumb drive at a minimum. Which sucks.

    Has anyone been able to install XenServer 6.5 on an 8GB (7.2GB in actuality) thumb drive?

    In the worse case I'm returning these, but kind of disappointed.


  • Service Provider

    Did you not have a thread about installing on a 8gb drive a few months ago? Without putting myself through the horror of NodeBB search, I thought it was you and you settled on a 16gb then.



  • That's just it I can't recall to save my life.

    Sadly, I likely did, but wanted confirmation. (check my sanity so to speak)



  • 8GB drives never give you 8GB of capacity tho.... this has bit me a time or two myself.

    Yeah it's only 7.2 GB usable in reality (I had mentioned it above)

    Oh well, back to Staples® these go.



  • I hit the store last night and spent $23 on a 32 GB, not point in not just having plenty of extra space.
