Just press TAB when you have boot menu or add it into porteus.cfg file for permanent use.

Re: vye-S18 mini - Thanks you guys

It was OK with version Porteus-v1.2-i486 but with version 2, there is not the same options on boot to allow me to select vesa, unless I am missing something? The desktop is far too big. Any ideas as I would really like to upgrade to the latest version.
