Cannot boot v2.1 x64 from usb

Post#1 by uyduruq » 21 Sep 2013, 18:18

Hi, I have downloaded v2.1 x64 and I am trying to boot from usb. I have tried three different usb sticks and two different laptops. Everytime I get the screen below and boot stucks with blinking cursor.

SYSLINUX 4.06 EDD 2012-10-23 bla bla bla...

Is there anything that I miss?

I realized that usb sticks are formatted with fat32. I reformatted the stick with fat. But this time I get boot menu and stuck again. I cannot select anything or boot to porteus.

What is your process for installing to USB?
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

Did you download it direct to the usb?
