Maybe install2iso and install2disk would work.  The real difference is
that one creates an ISO boot system, the other a normal disk system. 
Any names that make the difference clear would work.

USB hard disks win on
1. Speed 2. Media lifespan 3. Capacity 4. Cost

Flash sticks win on 
5. Physical size  6. Physical ruggedness

Non-volatile mem will someday surpass USB disks on all counts.  That
point is years away.  Right now you can't even buy 100 GB flash sticks,
and if you could, the money would buy a new car....
