Kiosk 4.8 Save ISO not saving to USB Drive

Post#1 by woodrow » 12 Jun 2019, 00:25

I worked with Porteus Kiosk 4.7 back in October of 2018, and was looking to update my local VirtualBox/VMWare Fusion versions to use 4.8, but it appears that trying to save the ISO after doing the config/setup wizard isn't working with the latest version.. It says it saved the Porteus-Kiosk.iso at /media (the mounted USB), but no ISO file appears after shutting down the VM. I just see hidden directories for .fseventsd and .Spotlight-V100. I'm using Mac OS Mojave, and this was working back in High Sierra for me last year. I just re-tested with the older 4.7 ISO that I had as well, and no luck with saving the ISO to the USB in the setup wizard, when I know it used to work. Installing the Kiosk on the VM hard drive works great, VM restarts to homepage and all that jazz.

Thank you in advance for any feedback/possible suggestions for rectifying this issue!

Hello woodrow,

"I just re-tested with the older 4.7 ISO that I had as well, and no luck with saving the ISO to the USB in the setup wizard, when I know it used to work."
This function works for sure. It must be your Mac OS messing things up.
Please try to save the ISO under any other system.

Thanks
