I used windows I have never been able to manually make a linux usb on on linux lol. Always used ubuntu's disk manager to put a linux iso on a usb. Also do have a windows 7 2009 desktop computer mostly needed something for my laptop. Until I can get a new hard drive or possibly a SSD card in all honesty.Ed_P wrote:I have no swap partition on my USB install. It may be useful on hard drives or an old concept for older equipment carried over.
This is the process I used to create my EFI booting flash drive. viewtopic.php?f=81&t=4632&p=33638#p33604
Anyway I created the porteus usb on the windows 7 desktop then used the usb maker Rufus to put the iso on the 2GB USB I have. Then ran the built in Porteus installer and selected the sanddisk cruz U after formatting it to ext4 and it's all working correctly saving and everything. I got the idea to do this from well puppy linux only thing though is puppy linux never got it to work from the usb never booted up or anything. So figured I would come and try out the method on porteus and it works lol.
Anyway I went with francois's advice and xfce with firefox is a lot faster and smoother then lxqt. No idea if installing to ram will work though probably just break the wifi again lol.
