I am booting ScPup-19.09+3-uefi-T.iso from a USB flash drive using isobooter, along with Xenialpup, Bionicpup and MX Linux. The Xenial and Bionic read their respective save files fine, but the ScPup doesn't. It just boots up into the first-run screen. The save file is in that same directory.

Am I just going senile?

Show the GRUB menu.lst entry for ScPup.

Where are the save files? In a subfolder on the flash drive?

menu.lst entry:

title ScPup-19.09+3-uefi-T
partnew (hd0,3) 0x00 (hd0,1)/ScPup-19.09+3-uefi-T.iso
map --heads=0 --sectors-per-track=0 (hd0,1)/ScPup-19.09+3-uefi-T.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
kernel /vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash psavemark=2 pfix=fsck
initrd /initrd.gz

The ISOs and the save files are all in the same folder, no subfolders. They are all on the second partition on the flash drive.

Thanks for responding!

Maybe ScPup doesn't recognize the PSAVEMARK argument.

Can you move the savefile onto Partition #1?

I made a flash drive with the same setup as you and had the same problem.

I tried some ways to fix it, but no luck.

So I moved the install to Partition #1 and that also failed to find its save file.

So it's a mystery.

That is a mystery. I was going to try partition #1 when I got home from work but you beat me to it.

Thanks for all the trouble. I'll try the 64-bit version when I get home. I like to keep the 32-bit versions on the flash drive to work in just about any computer.

I tried a regular Puppy flash drive install on the first partition instead of ISObooter. It worked.

I just tried ScPup64 with ISObooter on a single partition flash drive and it worked! It read the save file just fine.

I'm glad - I love ISObooter!

Thanks!

Try removing the psavemark=2 from the boot menu entry.
See if that helps.
As long as it has the pmedia=usbflash, it should search the USB drive for the save.

I tried it and it's still not reading the save file.
