Unable to install Porteus v4 and v5 to USB from both Windows and MacOS

Some progress. Portues booted from my USB but there is no internet connection.

Neither Portues settings or network preferences help.

What am I missing?

The problem is indeed due to the EFF folder I have not copied over to the USB previously.

Thank you all.

Unable to install Porteus v4 and v5 to USB from both Windows and MacOS

An approach you may consider, install Grub2Win on your Windows system and use it to control what boots. Not only will that allow you to boot the USB drive it will also allow you to boot the iso file directly on your harddrive. hth :) Thanks, Ed. Do you have specific Porteus installation instruction...

Unable to install Porteus v4 and v5 to USB from both Windows and MacOS

Any way to test the created Porteus USB stick on another PC? Just to make sure the drive itself works. I can not help with Windows stuff, but maybe one of these videos can take you a step further. https://invidious.13ad.de/search?q=How+to+boot+a+Surface+from+a+USB+device btw which surface? At least...

Unable to install Porteus v4 and v5 to USB from both Windows and MacOS

Do you mean the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) setting? No (partly because I've never heard of TPM). :) EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface) is a replacement for the BIOS system that used to be used to boot a system. This link provides steps how to access it on a Surface Pro: https://support.microsof...

Unable to install Porteus v4 and v5 to USB from both Windows and MacOS

But my Surface Pro continues to boot from SSD even though the boot order has been changed to USB -> SSD. Any ideas? Have you disabled your EFI's Secure Boot option? After disabling TPM, on startup, a message showing "Bitlocker preparing recovery" followed by entering the recovery key. Then Windows ...
