I am not sure how to get that issue over here.
So, if you want to pursue things, provide me with that ISO.
Hi burdi01,
Here's another ISO with this bug.

Apparently this bug occurs with all Porteus versions based on arch.

This ISO does not boot under VirtualBox (hangs on "Live system is ready now - starting Porteus") nor when dd'ed to a USB stick (asis not at all, after hybridization fails to mount /dev/sdc1).
Actually I was interested in the LinuxWelt ISO, not in a "random" APorteus one.

Have you tried extracting the iso and put the kernel initrd and modules on the drive itself?

No, I have not. Partly because I think creating a bootable USB stick from an ISO should be like as I mentioned, and partly because I do not have the time right now. Adding this to my todo list ...
