Porteus affecting Windows 7

Post#1 by meisthfox » 16 Jan 2018, 22:24

Here's one for ya : I copied MATE 3.2.2 to a flash drive, ran it with my Windows 7 laptop, everything ran as expected, booted out of porteous, back into Windows 7. 7 then informs me my C drive is corrupted and strongly advises I run a chkdsc. operation. When done, the screen displays all kinds of deletions and repairs it made. Fortunately, 7 ran well after that. But makes me apprehensive about running Porteus again. What do y'all think?

I've run Porteus with Windows 7 and Windows 10 for yrs with no problem. Not Mate and I don't know if that makes a difference. My porteussave.dat file is on the hard drive and gets updated everytime I shutdown and I save files to the hard drive from Porteus with no problems. Not sure what could have happened to your system.

No intelligence, no life and no information can exist without prior intelligence, life or information (in place where things change and time is running).
