reinstalling porteus HDD on asus FX502VM-AS73

So once the iso is booted from my /mnt/sda3 even though I started my system thru grub2 on /mnt/sdb3, I might reformat /mnt/sdb3 and reinstall grub2 from this mounted live iso. I would like tome to answer this one. He has been using the set iso mode for years. :)

reinstalling porteus HDD on asus FX502VM-AS73

@burdi: So in your scheme /dev/sda3: LABEL="OS" UUID="ECAAFDD5AAFD9C70" TYPE="ntfs" PARTLABEL="Basic data partition" would be hdx. And this would provide a grub2 bootable installation on sdb3. But where should I host my the iso of the live system? On sda3 which is ntfs? Or maybe I am too much breaki...

porteus: the perfect os, the pros and cons

And this is six years ago. Comments? How many of you use the magic folders and the exit cheat code? Personally, I boot directly from iso and install my new modules on hdd with a semi-permanent changes folder, or set my important files outside the changes folder, in case corruption gets into the new ...

A review of porteus

This was three years ago. How are we doing now?
The fact that some new development volunteers are able and have taken the helm while the captain brokenman is abroad is a very good improvement.
The comments of new users would be much appreciated. :)

reinstalling porteus HDD on asus FX502VM-AS73

A little shamed by this fact: the grub2 option for windows 10 vanished. I was about to reinstall linux on my /mnt/sdb3 partition, that is a debian xfce to get grub2 multiboot. All my partitions are devoted to the windows 10 installation except /mnt/sdb3 on which I set my linux systems. I work daily ...

grub2 on nemesis

Nice! Though I have a very different way to do it.

In fact, I wanted to know if somebody or someone (I never know which is the good one to use), have used the grub package of arch.

Thanks.

Screensaver in porteus 4.0

Same desktop as you have. Settings and power manager is the right place. As I have a laptop, the simplest thing without any changes is finally to close the lid. The suspend function is akward, it is set at unsuspend action to get back only to the stand alone screen. I use dual display. Dual display ...

grub2 on nemesis

Just to know, as anyone used nemesis with an installed grub2 package? I have the impression that this would be a great asset. Personally, I install debian in dual boot to get my linux boxes in multiboot with porteus or nemesis. Adding pertinent posts: A functional grub2 under artix https://forum.art...

Is there a screensaver in porteus stock? If so, how do you access the controls. I would like it to turn black more rapidly.

Thanks.
