Yes, as of V2.0, porteus uses an initramfs instead of an initrd. This is a cpio compressed image, so you'll want to follow the instructions in this post:

Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

Ahau thanks i did not see it, sorry,
the last post it works perfectly, viewtopic.php?f=53&t=572#p12193

but I made the process for trying and only decompressing and to compress (without script) without touching anything the initrd.xz increases in 1.5 MB, why?
is normal?
-------------------------
sorry i forget delete original initrd.xz :D
now the size is normal.
very thanks
