Sub_title: Puppy on panel PC and Compactflash card
 

Hello,

I'm trying to install Puppy (Toutou Linux) on a panel PC. The panel PC hasn't HDD but use a compactflash card instead. I don't find the 'Menu' -> Système->Pdisk utility to make the install on it .. Is it normal?

After I would like to use the touch screen capability of the panel and use a virtual keyboard^^ (For the moment I use USB mouse&keyboard)

Thanks Wink

use system, gparted to format the card
set the card boot flag
use setup, puppy universal installer: choose internal ide/sata sd install
reboot and set the bios first boot choice to SD

I boot my shuttle XS35 from SD using this method.

My new lappy has a great usable slot for SD compact flash (recessed below keyboard), but BIOS /UEFI can not see it to boot from it. Sad You are lucky.

Hello Zod and Welcome to the Forum Smile

I've had good luck with frugal installs to flash cards using Shinobar's
Frugal Installer in combo with GRUB04DOS

Both found here under Pic-Ups:

Puppy Universal Installer + grub4dos.

If installing from a card reader on another computer --> "USB Flash Media, later to be inserted into IDE (eg CF Card in IDE adapter)"

If installing directly to the target computer, with the card already inside --> "IDE/SATA Flash Media (eg DiskOnModule)"

Frugal install.

Then run grub4dos. CHECK YOUR menu.lst FILE AND MAKE SURE IT SAYS "pmedia=ataflash" ON ALL PUPPY BOOT ENTRIES. If you don't you'll get an error message instead of a boot process.

EDIT: [shameless plug] Weird computers that only accept CF "hard drives" are not the only place you can use those. See a howto I wrote, here --> http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=84649 I call a CF card in an IDE adapter, a "Poor Man's SSD" -- for a reason! If you only need 8-16gb of space they're golden. After that things get pricey fast.
