Security Boot Fail

You can boot it only from your computers where you have disabled secure boot. But outside (friend's place or at the workplace) it wont boot if secure boot is on. You cannot disable secure boot here. Good point jssouza . :happy62: So Porteus would need to develop a signed grub2 system, and I suspect...

Security Boot Fail

Do you have a secure boot enabled computer Ed_P? Oh, and does it run Porteus? :) I have an EFI computer and when Secure Boot is enabled and I attempt to boot the USB drive the machine runs a RAM test then tells me it can't find a system to boot. I can only boot the Porteus 4.0 USB drive with Secure...

True. I misread.
You need to sign the grub bootloader. Ubuntu does it with Canonical's signature, fedora with red hat's
So basically you don't boot to Ubuntu you boot to grub. Interesting.

Security Boot Fail

That approach takes up a lot of space on the USB drive! -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 2392064 Aug 23 11:24 efi.img* Plus all the /boot/grub/x86_64-efi files. It would be nice to figure out how the Ubuntu system supports the Secure Boot option so Porteus can do it also. But I think the Ubuntu approach is a ...

Security Boot Fail

No, the EFI and boot folders are only that of ubuntu. I put the porteus kernel and initrd in this boot folder. And copy the porteus folder onto the USB. Unclear to me. Are you referring to the /EFI/boot/ folder? Can you post an ls of the boot folder? Then I add an entry (or multiple entries) in the...

nuke all traces of ubuntu from the usb except the EFI and boot

Jack!! You're BACK!! :Yahoo!:

On EFI systems to boot a USB drive you need to disable the machine's Secure Boot option.


Welcome back Jack. :)

Question about Official Porteus Installation Guide

Until I get a chance to do a reinstall try changing the 2 things I noted previously. Porteus to porteus and usb-2 to sdc2 and retry the install.
