Re: HDD NTFS partition is mounted rw [SOLVED]

Your last option worked like a charm, even with the old initrd.
I use now in my PC: from=/mnt/sda1/porteus.iso nohd copy2ram
Thanks!

Re: HDD NTFS partition is mounted rw

I tried 'mopt=ro' and now the 'mount' command shows 'ro' for that partition, however I can write and create files in that partition. I guess that's what fanthom was meaning. I also tried 'nohd' but in this case it fails to boot (I am using the from= cheatcode so I guess that this prevents it to find...

Re: HDD NTFS partition is mounted rw

This one:
/dev/sda1 on /mnt/sda1 type ntfs (noatime,nodiratime,suid,dev,exec,async)
That's where the Porteus ISO is stored.

Re: HDD NTFS partition is mounted rw

Would that mean rebuilding the original Porteus ISO image with a modified fstab?

By the way, I also tried to remount it as read only, but it's not allowed: "Remounting is not supported at present. You have to umount volume and then mount it once again"

HDD NTFS partition is mounted rw

I have the Porteus ISO file on my Win7 NTFS partition, and use the from= cheatcode to use that ISO. I see now that the NTFS partition is mounted read-write, is this necessary? Where can I change this?

Re: What do you use porteus for?

I have a work laptop from my company, and when I'm not at work I prefer to use Linux. I can't create a new partition for Linux so I was searching for Live Linux distros that I can put on my current NTFS partition. So far I only know Knoppix and Porteus that have cheatcodes like from= or bootfrom= th...

Re: The best laptop fitting linux or porteus OS

I downloaded Porteus a couple days ago and everything seems to work fine. It's a HP ProBook 6470b. I don't need so many features though, so I haven't tested it too much: - Boot from HD with ISO/vmlinuz/initrd stored in my Windows NTFS partition (I don't have an optical drive and can't use a separate...
