searching for porteus, device not ready, porteus data not found

Post#16 by rych » 28 Mar 2019, 06:07

neko, I successfully boot after a few restarts always. This problem only happens on the new Dell computers with /dev/nvme host system disk drives which do not claim the names /dev/sda. So, /dev/sda become partitions of my USB drive. That's unusual. I'm used to seeing my USB disk to be sdb etc. I think I'd better add it to the subject line. NVMe is relatively new technology and porteus only supports it as of version 4.0. Here's the FAQ from DELL: https://www.dell.com/support/article/nz ... ds?lang=en.

Still problem could be unrelated to NVMe. After all, when finally booted everything works just fine: all the disks and partitions are mounted and accessible. It's just on slightly older Dells without NVMe this problem doesn't appear (with the same USB stick).

Congratulation !!

My PC has device partitions as following.

Code: Select all

# mount
/dev/mmcblk0p1 on /mnt/mmcblk0p1 type vfat (rw,noatime,nodiratime,fmask=0000,dmask=0000,allow_utime=0022,codepage=437,iocharset=iso8859-1,shortname=mixed,check=s,utf8,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/mmcblk0p2 on /mnt/mmcblk0p2 type ext4 (rw,noatime,nodiratime)
/dev/mmcblk0p3 on /mnt/mmcblk0p3 type ext4 (rw,noatime,nodiratime)
/dev/sda1 on /mnt/sda1 type ext4 (rw,noatime,nodiratime,stripe=8191)
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt/sdb1 type vfat (rw,noatime,nodiratime,fmask=0000,dmask=0000,allow_utime=0022,codepage=437,iocharset=iso8859-1,shortname=mixed,check=s,utf8,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/sdb2 on /mnt/sdb2 type ext4 (rw,noatime,nodiratime)
The device mnemonic assignment (/dev/sda, /dev/sdb) is dynamic changed depending connection via USB.
So I usually use an UUID as boot device notation.
Please refer to trying to setup grub2 for Porteus Mate (Post by neko #70443)


Thanks.

No, you don't need to do anything.

I am sorry to disturb you.
It is only a little advice to help on some trouble.

Thank.
