Description

It has been reported that:

on tails-i386-feature_uefi-0.23-20140110T0926Z-568489c, the
tails installer, at least in Clone&Install mode, will detect my 2nd
USB stick, will start the process and say "Resetting Master Boot
Record of /dev/sdd", and then just hang if the usb-stick is
read-only.

They suggest:

maybe it should catch that and produce some sane error message.

Retitling to the way to resolve it, instead of stating the problem. This could become an "Easy" task, just by adding a bit more guidance to this ticket, btw.
