I am trying to install CoreOS on HP Thin Client, but I am unable to format the flash drive. i have created the USB boot as per https://github.com/jriguera/coreos-usb-creator - then i can login to the thin client, but when i try to install CoreOS, i get the following error
khine@coreos /tmp $ sudo su bash-4.2# coreos-install -d /dev/sda -C stable -c cloud-config.yml Checking availability of "local-file" Fetching user-data from datasource of type "local-file" Downloading the signature for http://stable.release.core-os.net/amd64-usr/766.3.0/coreos_production_image.bin.bz2... 2015-09-21 15:49:14 URL:http://stable.release.core-os.net/amd64-usr/766.3.0/coreos_production_image.bin.bz2.sig [543/543] -> "/tmp/coreos-install.kGAdApmypF/coreos_production_image.bin.bz2.sig"  Downloading, writing and verifying coreos_production_image.bin.bz2... bunzip2: I/O or other error, bailing out.

If i try to mount the drive, I get the following:
bash-4.2# mount /dev/sda /mnt mount: /dev/sda is write-protected, mounting read-only mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so.
the flash drive is 500Mb - any advise on how i can install coreOS on HP thin client t5720?
