The advantage of this approach, IMO, is if you change/install/activate something and it doesn't work you can choose when shutting down to not same the changes. You start the next boot fresh to start over.

A tweak I have made to my Grub2Win isoboot code that you may like is I specify the name of the folder where my Linux system's files and folders are only once by setting a variable to the name and then using the variable whenever the folder name is required. In your instance your code could become:

Code: Select all

    set iso_folder='/porteus322'
    set isopath=$iso_folder/Porteus-MATE-v3.2.2-x86_64.iso
    set kernelpath='/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz'                
    set initrdpath='/boot/syslinux/initrd.xz'              
    set bootparms='from='$isopath' volume=33 reboot=cold extramod='$iso_folder'/Modules changes=EXIT:'$iso_folder'/Changes' 
Just a thought, not a requirement. What you're doing is working fine at this point. (finally)

I can't believe how better it run this way and a lot better then a USB. I will try this later or when I reboot up.

Code: Select all

    set iso_folder='/porteus322'
    set isopath=$iso_folder/Porteus-MATE-v3.2.2-x86_64.iso
    set kernelpath='/boot/syslinux/vmlinuz'               
    set initrdpath='/boot/syslinux/initrd.xz'             
    set bootparms='from='$isopath' volume=33 reboot=cold extramod='$iso_folder'/Modules changes=EXIT:'$iso_folder'/Changes' 
This way looks a lot cleaner or better to me.
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.

Well I have both Porteus 64bit Mate v3.2.2 and v3.2rc5 setup in Grub2Win.

1. Windows 7 64bit.
2. v3.2.2 the one for me that boot up slow.
3. v3.2rc5 the one for me that boot up fast.
