Boot on Usb and slide to the hard drive ...

The problem is easily solved if the Porteus is installed on the USB key; you just have to edit the boot menu ( porteus.cfg in the "syslinux" folder of the key) by adding on each line "APPEND" : from=/dev/sdb1/ It works perfectly ! Well, it may or may not. Your usb-key could also become sdc,sdd.. it...

Conky anyone?

Yes, I like to monitor my system. CPU usage and Temp is permanently shown in the panel. There are panel plugins in xfce to do this - nothing new. But I wanted some more -- time for conky. (I wanted to know if something gets written onto the usb-stick (it shouldn't)) Note: This conky shows what I wan...

If one has an EFI system it supports booting the USB drive, but it does nothing with BIOS systems
Secure Boot is an UEFI protocol.
And because (s)he has/found a switch to disable Secure Boot....
....what kind of "BIOS" might that be?
You’ll figure it out yourself, do you?. ;)

Unable to install Porteus v4 and v5 to USB from both Windows and MacOS

Any way to test the created Porteus USB stick on another PC?
Just to make sure the drive itself works.

I can not help with Windows stuff, but maybe
one of these videos can take you a step further.

There we have it ...this line is the wrong one., re-add slacky

EDIT
delete your /etc/usm/usm.conf.bkup if the file contains the same wrong line.
Otherwise the issue will return because this file is copied back to usm.conf.
