[[!meta title="Starting Tails from an external hard disk"]]
When starting Tails from an external hard disk or
[[problematic USB stick|support/known_issues#problematic-usb-sticks]],
Tails might return the following error message:
Unable to find a medium containing a live file system
In such cases, remove the <span class="code">live-media=removable</span>
boot option. To do so, see our instructions on [[modifying the boot options using
the Boot Loader|doc/advanced_topics/boot_options]].
<div class="caution">
<p>Removing the <span class="code">live-media=removable</span> boot
option might be dangerous. If an adversary had access to the computer
and installed a malicious Tails on the internal hard disk, the computer
might start on the malicious Tails instead of on the USB stick.</p>
