Re: Feedback for Porteus version 2.0 RC2

Below are the i...

Re: Feedback for Porteus version 2.0 RC2

@fanthom Thanks for your information. I think my problem might only happened in my VM test machine in Windows. (VMWare Workstation 8.0) I have used my usb stick to test on my physical machine, the hard disk could be mounted automatically. The wierd part is the hard disk in VM machine could be auto m...

Re: Feedback for Porteus version 2.0 RC2

I am thinking this question might be a silly problem, but i still don't know why. I have tested the Porteus version 2.0 RC2 and RC1. After successfully booting into Porteus, i found that the hard disk does not be mounted automatically. For example, my hard disk is recognized under /dev/sda, /dev/sda...

Hardware Detection Tool

Hi everyone, I have tried the Hardware Detection Tool (HDT) below in my environment. http://www.hdt-project.org/ HDT is a Syslinux com32 module, so it could also be integrated in Porteus. In my personal experience, the HDT could help me know target machine's "MBR" and "Linux Kernel modules needed by...

Re: [Solved] Can usb 3.0 disk be bootable?

I have done some other test on my USB 3.0 disk.

I have used a Windows tool (EaseUS) to format the USB 3.0 disk as FAT32 format.
Then copy Porteus content, and make the USB bootable by 'win_start_here.hta'.
Then i could boot Porteus from USB 3.0 disk, again.

Just sharing for someone may use.
