        It’s a very useful tip, thanks.

        The antiX / MX installer refuses to install to the drive which was used to boot the live system.
        This behavior is intended as a safety measure but, because it is inflexible, can be an annoyance.
        In the linked page, tradonal has explained a workaround.

        For the sake of accuracy, please clarify:
        Does the installer refuse to target the entire boot DEVICE (e.g. sda) or only the specific currently-booted PARTITION (e.g sda1) ?

          re,

          In the linked page, tradonal has explained a workaround.

          tradonal on mx it’s me

          for point 1a

          use disk: it’s empty no device found

          and for point 2a

          /(root)partition: this gives partition-info fatal error: device /dev/ is not a block device

          edit the file / sbin / partition-info and modify the line 169 solve this
