You may want to try replacing 3 files on the UEFI USB with files from the standard Porteus 64bit ISO. I don't recall right now if the recompiled kernel was only needed to support the secure boot. You can test to see.

Mount the ISO you have been booting from (as root):
mloop /path/to/Porteus-v2.1-x86_64.xzm
This will mount the ISO at /mnt/loop
Copy the following files from /mnt/loop onto the UEFI USB: initrd.xz, vmlinuz, 000-kernel.xzm

find /mnt/loop -name initrd.xz
000-kernel.xzm belongs in the porteus/base folder and the other two belong in the /EFI/porteus folder.

I can't do that. The ISO file is on the Win 7 machine and the Win 7 machine has no access to the flash drive.
find /mnt/loop -name initrd.xz

Is "find" a command or something I am to do?

parted /dev/sdX
mklabel msdos
quit

Then partition it using gparted or whatever your tool of preference is.
Doing this and rerunning the script would be a lot easier if Fresh mode wasn't required. Why is it required?

I can't do that. The ISO file is on the Win 7 machine and the Win 7 machine has no access to the flash drive.
Boot into porteus to do it.

It is a command. Sorry I forgot to bold it like all the other commands. 'find' is used to search for files at the console.

It's not required anymore. That is why I rewrote the script for you. You can boot into Porteus via an ISO file and run the script now.

EDIT:
I've updated the files on the server. The kernel is now at 3.11.4 stable and I used the same config as Porteus-v2.1 with the addition of EFI support (and some nvidia stuff I needed).

hmmmm An interesting option.

I normally boot my ISO with the change= cheatcode. To boot it in Fresh mode I removed the cheatcode.

I will do a rebuild tonight and report the results.

Ok i understand now. It is not imperative but it will always be the standard response from all devs. It ensures that no extra user added files are in the way and causing problems which could potentially use up a lot of time only to find that the problem is on the user side.

Thanks for testing.

Son of a gun, that works!! :good: So accessing the UEFI flash drive is a Windows 7 problem not a non-UEFI machine problem.

I'm a little confused at this point. Am I searching for and copying files to the existing build or am I nuk'ing the flash drive and rerunning the script.



Ok, I tried this approach:

This wifi card is supported by the inbuilt brcm80211 so it should work. Please show which driver is being loaded. As root please run in a console. .

lspci -k|grep -A2 Network

It would be better to simply upload a dump of xpsinfo. The Porteus System Information Tool has a function to upload a full dump of your machine info.

There seems to be a bug with the upload function, it requires a functioning Internet connection. 8)

So where would you like me to email the report?

Go to pastebin.com and upload the file then post the address here. In the meantime the output from the lspci command would help.

Since you said it would be better to do a dump of xpsinfo I didn't do the lspci command. I've never used pastebin before, hopefully this link is what you want.

This broadcom driver is a pain in posterior. Your kernel driver for wireless is not being loaded. You will need to blacklist some drivers. First please check if the following command loads the correct driver and your wireless works.

modprobe brcm80211
ifconfig wlan0 up


Please give any errors this spits out, and if none check if wifi works.

The default signon should be root. NOTHING works as guest.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ modprobe brcm80211
bash: modprobe: command not found
guest@porteus:~$ su
Password: 
root@porteus:/home/guest# modprobe brcm80211
modprobe: FATAL: Module brcm80211 not found.
root@porteus:/home/guest# 
Now when booting there is a 30-45 sec freeze of the screen when Porteus is Activating udev ..... I don't know if that is significant or not but I don't recall seeing it other times.

I understand the problem of having multiple drivers from the same company when the company uses the same name for different versions of its drivers. I encounter it when building Windows PEs.

Correction. Nothing that can screw your machine up permanently works. I work as guest and use a root console when I need to.

For your wireless card do some googling on: BCM4313 modprobe
You may need to modprobe wl, or one of the bcm* drivers. Please do a little searching (it is very self gratifying) and once you find the right driver to load, test the wireles.

modprobe wl loads kernel wireless drivers.
ifconfig wlan0 turns on your wireless card
iwlist wlan0 scan scans the local area to prove that wireless card is working ok.
