Than you for the reply.
The "Porteus" folder is actually called "porteus" in the ISO flle. I copied it using cp. The Installation Guide also says "porteus" with a small 'p'.
(2) Copy the files /boot and /porteus from the Porteus .iso file (or from a Porteus CD) to your flash drive.)
I tried changing /mnt/usb-1 and /mnt/usb-2 to /mnt/sdc1 and /mnt/sdc2, but as I expected it didn't change anything.
The "usb-1" and "usb-2" directories are mount points for /dev/sdc1 and /dev/sdc2 respectively. I thought I could name them whatever is most useful for me. I always do it this way. I don't want to confuse device
. The device name will change from boot to boot, depending on what thumb drive(s) or other devices is/are connected. The directory name in /mnt/ will not change.
Also note that the "USB_INSTALLATION.txt" at the base of the ISO says:
FOR EFI SYSTEMS:
Ensure the first partition is of type FAT32.
a) Copy the EFI, boot and porteus folders onto the FAT32 partition.
You may create a second partition with a linux filesystem for the porteus folder.
If you do so, you need to add the from=/mnt/sdb2 cheatcode to the porteus-v4.0-x86_64.cfg file.
This file is located in the porteus folder.
That's the only place I know of where there's a reference to /mnt
/something and I have changed
in the porteus-v4.0-x86.cfg
file, so the system knows where it is.
By the way, in case I did not make it clear earlier, this is meant to be a EFI only
device, and I am making it using a Xubuntu (on hd) EFI only
