When I run Porteus-wizard or ready version, after connecting modules, launched a black screen.
Maybe the problem video drivers: Nvidia GT218 Ion 2.

"Maybe the problem video drivers: Nvidia GT218 Ion 2."
Yes - could be the reason.

Does any other linux work with this PC? Have you tried Ubuntu? Or maybe you could try our desktop edition with nouveau first and then with nVidia drivers:

"How to add drivers?"
You would have to compile them against certain kernel version which is not easy. If you are interested then please contact me through and i'll send you kernel config so you can recreate kiosk kernel and compile nVidia driver against it.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
