[Solved] [BOOT]

Post#1 by Jack » 08 Jul 2015, 03:09

Can I ask a question what is [BOOT] "Bootable_NoEmulation.img" inside the ISO image for? I have never seen it before 3.1 and do I need it?

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

This directory [BOOT] don't actually exist in the ISO.
(that's why it shows up in brackets)
If you burn the ISO, you won't see those directories.
The [BOOT]/Bootable_NoEmulation.img file are the first 2048 bytes of /boot/isolinux/isolinux.bin.
your extractor program (7zip ?) just show this file in a special directory,
so you can easily extract the bootsector of the ISO.

Jack,leave it as it is, for now, and please explain where do you have this file on your thumb drive.
I assume that you have unpacked the iso, including the [BOOT] folder to your thumb drive.If so, you can delete this folder/file.
If not, I'm not sure how you got this file onto your drive.

I just unpack the ISO to the thumb drive. The file system is ext4 then I ran "sh Porteus-installer-for-Linux.com" to make it bootable. Then I just booted it in to Porteus.

OK..got it..
For a porteus Installation only the boot and porteus Folders are required.
I think it is safe to say that you can delete the [BOOT] folder/file.

I don't know about the .img file but the BOOT folder is for EFI booting.

When Porteus Mate 3.1 boot up should it boot up in guest or root? I hope it is guest cause that how mind boot up.

If you didn't change the boot options it boots into guest.

I didn't change anything and I wanted it to boot to guest. I wish I could change the root password.
