I downloaded the Hera 5.1 ISO and used Rufus 3.11 to burn the ISO to a USB Drive (16GB). When burning, I used MBR for the boot and selected about 12GB for the persistence volume.
The install went fine. The USB boots to the Install/Try elementary OS prompt. I select Try and the elementary OS loads. However, there is no persistence. For example, I need to reset the background and re-enter the WiFI information with each boot.
I checked and there is a casper-rw partition available and it mounts under elementary OS. It uses about 128MB of the 12GB. But I see no files in that mount from within elemntary OS.
Has anyone else gotten elementary OS 5.1 Hera to run off a Live USB with persistence and if so, how? I tried re-burning it with another USB creator (LinuxLive USB) and same result--no persistence.
