Porteus 4.0 not booting in UEFI mode SOLVED

a) extract the iso, copy the porteus and boot folders to the usbstick, ran the correct .bat file within windows. zahtar if you read the USB_INSTALLATION.txt file in the ISO's / directory it makes no reference to a .bat file. FOR EFI SYSTEMS: Ensure the first partition is of type FAT32. a) Copy the ...

Modify my XFCE

Another option is to make a module of your changes and load them when you boot.

So MaxP the answer is Yes you can customize your Porteus system without installing it to a USB drive. But you do need space somewhere to save your changes. :)

How are you booting Porteus? I boot my system as a ISO using grub2 commands and Porteus cheatcodes, two of which you may like; changes= and extramod=. Checkout the available codes in the ISO's or CD's /boot/docs/ folder.

Taking the first error, it seems it's looking for QCOMUTIL.dll. What if you try to rename it to respect this specific case (XXX.yyy)? Done. Thanks fulalas . Show us the file list and the Wine error, please. Both shown below. guest@porteus:~$ wine /mnt/sda3/"Program Files (x86)"/QUICKENW/QW.EXE wine...

Wine and multilib latest version

OK, I think the missing files are just: IPROF32.dll # LBTMNGR.dll MFC42.dll # ONLNCALL.dll Q_encutl.dll # QACCES32.dll QCOMUTIL.dll QWINET.dll QWUTIL7.dll XPORT.dll to which I can find on my old Windows 7 system where the app ran all but 3 of them, which are denoted with the "#" sign. -update- And w...

Thank you evergreen but mfc42 is not the only file missing. And I'm leery of messing up my Windows system. This app runs on a Windows 10 system with no problem so don't understand the wine problem. -update- It appears I have mfc42.dll on my system, just not where wine is looking for it. https://i.po...

I don't think the file name's case is the problem. 0009:err:module:import_dll Library MFC42.DLL (which is needed by L"Z:\\mnt\\sda3\\Program Files (x86)\\QUICKENW\\QCOMUTIL.dll") not found 0009:err:module:import_dll Library QCOMUTIL.dll (which is needed by L"Z:\\mnt\\sda3\\Program Files (x86)\\QUICK...

Can I run Porteus on UEFI cheap tablets?

luko I don't know about cheap tablets but standard Porteus 4.0 installed on my USB drive boots fine on my EFI notebook. My USB drive is formatted as FAT32 so is EFI compatible. These links should help: UEFI Boot Confusion [Solved] , Porteus on UEFI-ONLY: rock solid boot! (Post by nanZor #72797)

Wine and multilib latest version

Hmmm... Is this a .Net application? Apparently though I never remember using online. Another thing: although Windows is not a case sensitive system, remeber that Linux is, so my tip is: rename everything to lower case. I wondered about that being a problem. As for renaming everything, you got a scr...
