The problem is the booting script can not find base modules inside '/PorteusXFCE/porteus/base'.
:o

Please display the output of:

Code: Select all

ls /mnt/sdb1
ls /mnt/sdb1/PorteusXFCE

This code works on a USB drive where I have Porteus installed!

Code: Select all

title Porteus 3.2.2 Cinnamon x86_64    \n \n Installed
find --set-root                       /boot/syslinux/vmlinuz
kernel /boot/syslinux/vmlinuz     extramod=UUID:931F-8716/Modules;/Modsavedat volume=40 reboot=cold ramsize=80%  
initrd /boot/syslinux/initrd.xz

You might try (hd1,0)

With /dev/sda, it would be (hd0,0), you're using /dev/sdb
