Installing Porteus to HDD not working? Porteus 2.0 x64

Post#1 by Kartweel » 01 Apr 2013, 03:32

Porteus 2.0 64 bit

In a VM I boot off ISO to KDE, go through the install wizard, create a partition and format to EXT3. Install and select the bootable option.

When I reboot the machine it either hangs and does nothing or says no bootable medium found.

Also tried running the install script directly and it says it is successful, but doesn't result in a bootable system.

Running the windows installer seems to work fine, but I wanted an EXT3 formatted drive, not NTFS, so I can avoid the save.dat file.


Thanks, Ryan

hi Ryan,

(Moved your topic to 64bit bug reports)

please try updated installer from:
http://ponce.cc/porteus/x86_64/testing/ ... -Linux.com

and if you get a failure then please post error log generated by it.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
