Personally I would never do it like that. The way I do it is to boot
the live image off the .iso and then once you get to the sugar home
screen run terminal and run "liveinst"

The livecd-iso-to-disk script is at best a hack!

I'd love to be able to put an install icon on the sugar wheel or
somewhere within the UI but I've never managed to get anyone
interested in doing it.


PS There's a number of reasons I've never provided "official" VM
images which is due to similar issues to what you see above.
