Blaze :%)

Not sure what you mean, the current version of Grub2Win or the installing it to a Windows 10 system? I believe you installed Grub2Win to a flash drive last fall, can you copy it from there?

I prefer more GRUB2 for Linux than Grub2Win and files that are location in one bootable partition.

@blaze:

For frugal install, grub2 is really the way to go. Please point to that post where you described the way to install it on porteus.

Thanks.

On /mnt/sda1 I have a FAT32 partition with the EFI and boot folder.
How do I get that done?

This process worked for me. Single partition, FAT32 format, recognized in Windows 10 and Linux and pretty much any other system.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ EFI/porteus-efi-usb.sh

ISO=/mnt/sda6/ISOs/Porteus-CINNAMON-v4.0-x86_64.iso 
USB=/mnt/sdb1 
PORTEUS=/mnt/sda6/porteus4.0 

Press Enter to continue, Ctrl+C to cancel.

Enter root's password 
Password: 

ls /mnt/sdb1
EFI  USB_INSTALLATION.txt  boot  porteus  porteus-efi-usb.sh        <<<<<<<< Porteus 3.x system

/mnt/sdb1 drive? 

  Remove all existing files on /mnt/sdb1? [y/n] y


Copying porteus ISO files and folders to the USB drive.

Please wait!! This can take a minute or two.  
And if it doesn't something is wrong!!  Abort.  

Press Enter to continue...

Installing Porteus to the USB drive - from the Live system?
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing Porteus Installer......

                             _.====.._
                           ,:._       ~-_
                               '\        ~-_
                                 \        \.
                               ,/           ~-_
                      -..__..-''   PORTEUS   ~~--..__

Installing Porteus to /dev/sdb1
WARNING: Make sure this is the right partition before proceeding.

Type 'ok' to continue or press Ctrl+c to exit.

Flushing filesystem buffers...

Using extlinux bootloader.

Installation finished successfully.
You may reboot your PC now and start using Porteus.
Please check the /boot/docs folder for additional information about
the installation process, Porteus requirements and booting parameters.
In case of making tweaks to the bootloader config,
please edit: /mnt/sdb1/boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg file.

Press Enter to exit.


Porteus 4.0 install complete.  Set to begin my restores.  
Press Ctrl+C to exit & reboot, press Enter to continue...

guest@porteus:~$ ls /mnt/sdb1/
EFI/  USB_INSTALLATION.txt*  boot/  porteus/  porteus-efi-usb.sh*
guest@porteus:~$ 
When rebooting I pressed F12 repeatedly till the BIOS window opened, I selected the EFI USB drive and it booted. The machine is a Windows 10 machine and the EFI Secure Boot option was disabled.

To allow the Windows 10 machine to conveniently choose to boot Windows 10 or the USB drive I use Grub2Win on the Windows 10 system.
