If the 1st partition size is selected MAX(USB size),
one partition will be created in USB.
Otherwise, 2 partitions will be created in USB.
The 2nd partition is used by only linux users.

The 1st partition file system is FAT/ext4.
The contents of ISO will be set in the 1st partition.

The 2nd partition file system is one of FAT, ext3, ext4.
The 2nd partition may be used for general purpose.
If the 2nd partition file system is a linux file system (ext4 ,ext3) ,

It doesn't need to be opened, it's a Porteus module and needs to be Activated to be used. :)

I have just spent two whole days trying to install Porteus to a USB. It simply refuses to do it. From the dvd, it doesn't work, unetbootin can't do it either, following the instructions in the iso doesn't work because it doesn't allow you to put in the password, even though the instructions do provide it. I reformat the stick to FAT 32 each time, sometimes I flag it as boot, sometimes not. No matter what permutations I use, nothing works! a Windows user, encountering these problems, is just going to abandon Linux completely and tell everyone it's a dog, (which bionicpup is! Yeah I tried that as well, that does install eventually but you have to be sneaky) and potential users looking to change will encounter this and recommend that everyone avoids it. Frankly, I'm about to pass on it as well.

I truly don't undertand the problems you are having CestMero. But then again I don't know what pc you're using, whether it's x86 or x86_64, what OS you're using, what flash drive your using, what version of Porteus you're trying to install, where you got the CD/DVD since you neglected to tell us any of those specifics. :unknown: So trying to help is not possible.

Maybe this write up will help you: https://fitzcarraldoblog.wordpress.com/ ... ifference/
