Subject description: to use in Liva XE pc , Intel 3060
 

First , thank you Puppy Team for this extraordinary OS . Just succeeded booting it in an ECS Liva XE (Intel 3060 , 2G/64G emmc , UEFI , no factory installed OS) . How :
a) Downloaded XenialPup64 7.5 iso file ,
b) With Ubuntu 15.4 , dd the iso into a 8G usb flash (SanDisk) , but it didn't boot ;
c) With Windows XP , downloaded Unetbootin and made a bootable usb flash (the same above) , it didn't boot either ,
d) Downloaded Rufus 2.18 and made a bootable Puppy in iso mode , using the same usb flash above , it started booting but stopped (asking for a partition path) ,
e) With Ubuntu , opened the iso file and the usb flash bootable file (generated by Rufus) , to compare ,
f) Added to the bootable usb flash file : Isolinux.bin , Islinux.cfg , Initrd.gz and Boot catalog . It finally booted well .
I am browsing using a usb modem 3g , but wifi may need additional driver which ECS does provide in its website (for Ubuntu 14.04 , don't know if works for this Puppy) .

Setting changes made in Liva's UEFI :
1- Disabled "Fast Boot"
2- Disabled "Secure Boot"
3- Changed Boot order : "Boot option #1 [USB Flash]

Hi All,

Having just read marcus.bdg's post on another thread, I think he may seeking advice about a wifi driver. See item "f" above.

marcus.bdg post back if I'm right.

If so, can someone walk him thru determining how to find out which driver he needs and then what to do next. Remembering procedures isn't my strong suit.

GOTO https://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/ and dnld the Universal OR YUMI. I used the Universal as is to make a good booter. However, used YUMI to make a multi booter for Xenial, Slacko, Tahr -- all latest in their vers, but [I'm just remembering here, I usually insert a txt file to indicate which ver of YUMI or UUI used as well as how I made it, but did not, so . . .] to make Xenial bootable, and prolly other Ubuntu based Pups as well, I selected Ubuntu as the distro and then installed/used the Xenial ISO. Works fine on all but one of my laptops except one, which will not display the 1600X900 no matter what -- other Pups do so. I just like multi booting & generally never have less than 3 Pups, not counting other Linux.
