Hello everyone,

I tried the delay=30 and the kernel posted by Brokenman and it didn't work out on the Sandisk, the MicroSD is working perfectly fine with the kernel suggested by him. I'm really considering buying a pen drive from another brand or exchanging it. If anyone has any ideas....

Best regards,

Lucas.

Lucas did you update the kernel as noted here?

Hi Ed,

I just went into the folder http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/kernel/porteus-4.9.12/ downloaded everything in it and put them in the /base folder. When asked to replace I choose "yes to all". To say the truth, I don't know why with this files my wifi isn't recognized and my screens boots blurred (in the MicroSD, I installed in my microSD and Sandisk USB). In the Sandisk USB, it continued giving the same error message (the SCSI one). Any ideas?

Best regards and have a nice week,

Lucas.

:(

Try these locations instead.

vmlinux -> /boot/syslinux
000-kernel.xzm -> /porteus/base
other xzm files -> /porteus/modules

:)

How big are each of the USB sticks and what are they formatted as?

Hi Ed,

It worked as a charm in the MicroSD, on the Sandisk it gave the same message (SCSI one). The MicroSD is formatted in ext4 with 64gb and the Sandisk USB is formatted in ext4 with 32gb.

Regards,

Excellent. :Yahoo!:

With the SanDisk one try adding acpi=off as a boot option.

Hi Ed,

As you can imagine, I'm advancing with the MicroSD and stuck with the USB. I followed the acpi suggestion. Porteus got stuck at the second line after booting, the one that says that it is loading initrd.xz. It stopped before the point that was stopping.

Thanks and regards,
