I've uploaded a new zip file, http://www.fishprogs.software/puppy/zipboot/upupbb-18.05+13.zip.
It contains all that is needed to setup a bootable usb stick.

Windows process for uefi boot:

1. Download http://www.fishprogs.software/puppy/zipboot/upupbb-18.05+13.zip (259 MiB).

2. Format usb stick, with "Volume label" of "USBPBOOT".

3. Unpack the zip file, in this case "upupbb-18.05+13.zip", into the empty usb stick.
Windows: Right click on the zip file, and select "Extract All...", and in the ensuing dialog select the empty root folder of the usb stick.
Puppy: Right click on the zip file, and select "XArchive archiver, "Select All", "Extract", then "choose" the empty root folder of the usb stick.

4. Boot the usb stick.

To enable a mbr/legacy boot, there is an extra step:

Windows: Execute "utils\win\grubinst_gui.exe" within the usb stick.
Puppy: Execute "utils/lin/grubinst_gui.sh" within the usb stick.

Note: I intend to delete all previous files uploaded in this project, soon.

In case there is someone interested in how this latest zip file works, but is daunted by a 259MiB download,
I have uploaded http://www.fishprogs.software/puppy/zipboot/puppy_usb_stick.zip (1 MiB).

This zip file contains everything execpt the actual Puppy files. i.e. the "puppy/" directory is empty.
So the process will work as per the instructions of the previous post, execpt that when you come to boot the usb stick, the bootloader will not be able to find the kernel because the "vmlinuz" file does not exist.

You could make it work, by copying "vmlinuz", "initrd.gz" and all the ".sfs" files from some existing woof-ce based frugal install into the "puppy/" directory on the usb stick.
