^ Getting a slight dejavu here. Feeling this business with live CD just a stepping stone, which will be discarded with growing experience of Porteus. :roll:

Then you will be loading Porteus from the hdd. However can still hang on to the iso idea, not on CD but on hdd. Boot from anywhere; hdd or usb or cd, but load Porteus from iso file on hdd. Or as I normally run, from iso file on hdd into ram, the iso file being read just the once. 8)

make_iso.sh works like a charm for withing a few minutes:
Given boot and porteus on /mnt/sda5

Code: Select all

cd /mnt/sda5
./porteus/make_iso.sh
