I do install in a directory and then copy the content to the flash drive
then chroot and make it bootable

alternatively you ma install into directory where flash drive is mounted and
then chroot and make it bootable

forget not that you need to mount the system related /proc/ etc.

this is what I am using

        mount --make-unbindable -obind /proc/ $SYSTEM/proc/ && \
        mount --make-unbindable -obind /dev/ $SYSTEM/dev/ && \
        mount --make-unbindable -obind /dev/pts $SYSTEM/dev/pts && \
        mount --make-unbindable -obind /run $SYSTEM/run && \
        mount --make-unbindable -obind /sys $SYSTEM/sys/ && \
        chroot $SYSTEM su -


For the umount

        umount $SYSTEM/proc/ && \
        umount $SYSTEM/dev/pts && \
        umount $SYSTEM/dev/ && \
        umount $SYSTEM/run/ && \
        umount $SYSTEM/sys/
