Installing Linux Fedora 16 of off an external HDD on Windows?

How can one install Feora 16 32 bit live of off an external HDD through USB?

I tried it with Universal-USB-Installer and get the error message that there was a no drive found to be mount and also the the format ntfs is not recognized.

In Netbootin the external HDD does not even get recognized in Windows 8 CP and is not selectable in the drop down menu, even though it is visible and writable in Windows Explorer.

I have managed all of this with Ubuntu 12.04 and Universal-USB-Installer, but with Fedora 16 it did not work for me.

Does anybody know about the error messages? Any action I can take from here?

p.s. I am wondering would the procedure work out if I simply format the external HDD in exFat instead of ntfs?

I have read that others have gotten it to work with vFat.
