Live USB Creator  has a new feature is allowing a destructive (dd) 
install to USB [1]
This is a safer way to move the xxx.iso to a USB and make it bootable.
look at the referenced .png and the wiki page link a gave earlier [2]
The fedora 21 installer (root terminal in sugar:#liveinst" is shown with 
screenshots and narration here [3]

If you choose persistence and move slider it is only persistent for a 
short time and does corrupt and
stop eventually.

For a slow but really persistent USB install to a 8 GB usb ext4 with no 
swap with "liveinst"

I use external USB HD all the time to install to and they are cheap and 
quite large these days.
