Official Installation Guide for Version 1.1

This section of the forum is primarily dedicated to non-standard installations of Porteus. If you came here looking for the Official Installation guide, you can find it here.

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

All I get when clicking on Poeteus Install Guide references is a 'This link cannot be found'. Not too helpful for newcomers. What do you folks suggest I do as I would like to Install the 64 bit version to a partition on my main hard drive.
With hope and thanks,
sam

Hello and welcome, sam!

Sorry about the install guide -- the documentation section of our website appears to be suffering from some technical issues, which is why the link isn't working.

For the time being, you can read the same document inside the Porteus ISO, at /boot/docs/install.txt. You can either burn the ISO image file to a CD, mount the cd on a loop (in linux), or extract the contents of the ISO using archiving software such as 7zip (linux or windows). This guide has a section on hard drive (aka 'frugal') installs. It should be pretty straightforward (copy the /boot/ and /porteus/ folders from the ISO to your hard drive, and execute win_start_here.hta if you're running windows or lin_start_here.sh if you're running linux), unless you have other OS's on that hard drive and want to continue using your existing bootloader. If that's the case, let us know what bootloader you're using and what your setup looks like, and we can get you started in the right direction.

Thanks!
