but using Microsoft edge ?
seem like you aren't fully benefiting from the freedom of Linux xD
True, but your getting your feet wet in a whole new OS that someone got you to try. And the learning process starts. :)

AIO Create any Windows/Linux Bootable USB Drive

Thank you neonred. A lot of the tutorials here are old and need updating.

Two questions, what is Tails and how do your instructions compare to the USB_INSTALLATION.txt file's instruction in the Porteus ISOs. We don't want to confuse new users.

UEFI and Legacy - at the same time?

Bicephale if you want to boot multiple Linux systems on multiple hardware systems an app that installs grub2 on a FAT32 MBR USB drive is a reasonable approach which your YUMi app seems to do. I suspect that approach also supports large USB drives partitioned to handle large files. If you want to bo...

I learn something today

I don't get that error when I click on the link I posted with Firefox. I suspect a http / https problem. Try a different mirror. http://porteus.org/porteus-mirrors.html
