Sweet! It will allow you to use an external USB HDD! This is perfect for what I've been looking for. Testing it out now.

I can't get my Revo to boot from a flash drive created with LiLi. I used Dharma 10.0 ISO, told LiLi to format my USB drive. All I get when I try to boot from said flash drive all I get is a blinking cursor...
Works Great - xsmokex - 2011-01-25 01:47
Just used LiLi to make a live install on a 4 gig flash with persistence. It worked great, no problems at all.
I now have Live running on a new Zotac Zbox HD-ND02.

If that's the case I could get an Atom Ion system and not even put it in a case and just have it screwed to the back of the TV.

you need to install video drivers to correct that.
If its nvidia look here

Just chiming in for 2 reasons:
1. I used LiLi to make my XBMC Live USB stick, and it worked great.
2. I found out by trying that I could also use LiLi clone my flash drive install. (I wanted to move my install from my larger USB pendrive to a smaller one, and it worked when I started LiLi, told it CD as the source and pointed it at the pervious Live USB, and made the destination my new USB pendrive. It copied over all the files, then wrote a proper bootloader!)

I finally got around to testing it last night. Out of the box the LiLi created XBMC Dharma install worked just fine. I added the nightly/unstable PPA so that I could use this install as a sandbox to play with the nightlies. I made the mistake of upgrading the nvidia drivers via nvidia-current. While the drivers installed just fine, the update to initramfs fails because
So my question is, is there any way to get around this, or am I stuck with the older nvidia drivers and kernel? If the latter is the case, I'm fine with that, I'm just not sure what all initramfs does when I add the new nvidia drivers to perform all the actions manually. Also, can I install the latest nightlies without causing a change to grub i.e. is there anything within the new builds that would trigger an initramfs-update?

What do I do if this just hangs at the grub command line? I have used about 10 flash drives and every single one hangs. Downloaded xbmc 3 times, same thing happens.
Hardware is a Revo 1600.

mine hangs at a screen that says "XBMC login:"
booting from scratch (not from virtual box), and downloading manually the dharma version.
.....oh but it works fine in virtualbox
