I rerun Grub2Win and edit Porueus 3.2.2 and redetect the ISO and now it boot but it said something about the Modules directory. Any idea
Make sure the bootparms values are all on one line.

Code: Select all

set bootparms='from='$isopath' volume=33 reboot=cold extramod=C:/porteus322/Modules'
The forum windows have a tendency of breaking code lines into two lines.

How can I load the addon modules? I put them in the modules directory in C:/porteus322/modules.
And if you named your folder modules rather than Modules as you said before change the bootparms to match whatever name you actually named it.

Code: Select all

set bootparms='from='$isopath' volume=33 reboot=cold extramod=C:/porteus322/modules'
All on ONE line.

Remember while Windows treats C:\porteus322\Modules and c:\Porteus322\modules as the same name Linux does not.

A final tweak to the menu.

Download this icon and add it to the c:\grub2\themes\icons\ folder as icon_porteus.png.

Image

Then tweak the menu's title changing the menuentry --class icon_isoboot parameter to --class icon_porteus.

:)

Thanks for the icon a I just added it. I check modules and Modules was ok. Now I will test it.

UPDATE:
The problem is Porteus needs a cheatcode to make it work. I never use any cheatcode.
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.

Really. And what cheatcode does it need? :)

Please post the grub.cfg code that you have for the Porteus menu, from menuentry thru savelast, together with a Windows Command Prompt output of these commands:

Code: Select all

dir c:\*.
dir c:\porteus322

Porteus need to know where to find the addon modules are since they are C:/porteus322/Modules directory. I guest. It can't FireFox and all the other.

I also added v32rc5 and look at it to too. Look at it all to fine anything wrong.

I try to do this but MS-Dos would not let me copy and paste it.

Code: Select all

dir c:\*.
dir c:\porteus322

Check this link: http://www.porteus.org/component/conten ... -them.html and scroll down it a page or two. Do you see anything that looks familiar? 8)
Porteus need to know where to find the addon modules are since they are C:/porteus322/Modules directory. I guest. It can't FireFox and all the other.
There are only two possibilities: 1. The name of the location for the modules is spelled wrong or 2. the modules are not in the folder.
Here is the grub.cfg file. This is the whole thing.
The Porteus 3.2.2 menu looks fine.

The Porteus 32rc5 menu looks like you didn't follow the steps you used to create the Porteus 3.2.2 menu.

Oh it will let you but in a somewhat less than obvious way.

Once you have executed the dir commands RIGHT click on the Command Prompt's color bar at the top of the window. It will display a menu. In the menu click on Edit then click on Select All. Move your pointer to the highlighted text and press Enter. Come to your posting here, click on Code and then place your pointer between the code tags, RIGHT click and click on Paste.

See how straight forward that was? :%)

BTW To the two dir commands add a third.

dir c:\porteus322\Modules

If I need to do any changes in the grub.cfg can I just use a text editor from now on?

So this needs to be in Porteus cheatcode, so can you post your so I can see?
confirm the names and locations of the 2 folders used in your Porteus cheatcode in the menu

Code: Select all

extramod=C:/porteus322/Modules
I fixed this to with notepad.

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.

Change your bootparms cheatcodes from

Code: Select all

set bootparms='from='$isopath' volume=33 reboot=cold extramod=C:/porteus322/Modules'
to

Code: Select all

set bootparms='from='$isopath' volume=33 reboot=cold extramod=/porteus322/Modules'
Sorry. :oops:

Thank you Ed_P and Blaze for all your help.

@Ed_P

That did the trick and up and running Porteus right now from a ISO file. Now I need to set it up the way I want it then use Porteus Save Session and put it in C:/porteus322/Modules directory.

I'm going to do the same for v32rc5 because I like youtube downloader and I can't use it in v3.2.2 it freeze up.

I been wanting to do this for a long time and now I did it on Friday the 13th.

Actually I think you want to put it in the

Code: Select all

 Directory of c:\porteus322

01/12/2017  12:51 PM    <DIR>          Changes
directory. And your bootparms cheatcodes will change to

Code: Select all

set bootparms='from='$isopath' volume=33 reboot=cold extramod=/porteus322/Modules  changes=/porteus322/Changes'
this is all on ONE line

or

Code: Select all

set bootparms='from='$isopath' volume=33 reboot=cold extramod=/porteus322/Modules  changes=EXIT:/porteus322/Changes'
This what I use and this is also all on ONE line.
