Porteus-installer-for-Linux.com / this seems to be problem

Post#1 by vlnikolic » 08 Apr 2017, 21:09

hello everybody


i have problem installing porteus on usb-flash-stick formatted as ext4.

situation a (working well):

* i format usb stick to ntfs (or fat32)
* i copy contents of installation iso to usb
* i use Porteus-installer-for-Windows.exe

.. and everything is fine. porteus boot normally.

situation b (does not work):

* i format usb stick to ext4
* i copy contents of installation iso to usb
* i use Porteus-installer-for-Linux.com

.. and porteus wont boot. i get message:

No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found

i use hp laptop (probook), and i have tried with modifying bios config but without success. thus i tried with another laptop / older sony vaio / and i get into the very same trouble.

i have no idea what should be my next step.

i am trying to make usb that will have two partitions one ext4 (with porteus), and one ntfs (or fat32).


thanks for your time and interest
