Help with installation

Hey, I am new to this porteus distro, but how to I get porteus to boot from a ntfs formatted file system because i need the larger than 4GB file size limit. My current OS is Windows 10.

See Install Porteus from Windows (Post by Blaze #77453)

Also, check the instructions in the file "USB_INSTALLATION.txt" that is in the ISO

Hello DariusSG, welcome to the forum.

Rather than install Porteus you can boot the ISO directly, on a NTFS file system, if you have a bootloader installed. I have Grub2Win installed and I boot Porteus, and others, using grub2 commands to boot the ISO files, all on NTFS file systems, without installing them.

Just to confirm, Create a partitions(FAT32) large enough for porteus to be stored and leave the rest unallocated. Then Boot into porteus normally and create another partition(NTFS,ExFat,Ext2/3/4,etc...) using the remaining space. copy over the /porteus folder and reconfigure porteus-something.cfg to go to the new /porteus folder(partition 2). Right?

Not how I do things. 1 partition. And while I use FAT32, exFAT may work also. Porteus stays on the single partition. Read the install file in the ISO.
