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?

Some Linux distros are designed such that their sole purpose for booting is to be installed, which I personally don't care for, but Porteus is designed to be useful even when booted as an ISO. And with the million different hardware configurations there will be distros that will fail to boot on some...

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 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

I meant rc3. SORRY
You should edit your posting and correct the "rc"s.

So basically Jack it sounds like your using your customized Mate DE from ??? with Porteus 5.0rc3. Have you tried the Porteus-MATE-v5.0rc3-x86_64.iso system?
