Error: "could not find boot record"

Post#1 by LanceHaverkamp » 03 May 2019, 18:06

https://porteus-kiosk.org/download.html says: Porteus Kiosk is released as a standalone 'hybrid' ISO image, but https://porteus-kiosk.org/public/4.8/Po ... x86_64.iso does not report as hybrid.
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Trying to make it hybrid returns:
could not find boot record
...and Etcher returns the same "no boot record" error.
Is there a working cloud iso somewhere, or newer instructions?

(using Fedora 29)

Thanks,
Lance
