Repurpose Chromebox to use with Porteus.

Hello all. I had several Asus Chromeboxes that I was no longer using once the free version of kiosk mode went away.

I've successfully installed porteus on the Chromeboxes using a BIOS found on mrchromebox.com. Everything works until it's time for the scheduled reboot or if i send a reboot command from PK server. The reboot command causes the unit to power down and not come back up. Any thoughts on how I can fix this?

Hi Dimitri,

Please try this parameter:

Code: Select all

kernel_parameters=acpi=force reboot=warm,cold,bios,smp,triple,kbd,acpi,efi,pci,force
In my tablet case this parameter enough:

Code: Select all

kernel_parameters=reboot=efi,pci,force
Thanks
