I did try that but it didn't help lick to find the ext4 partition so I formatted to ntfs. But somehow I don't feel safe with ntfs as its microsoft.

As far as I know, the Puppy is loaded into RAM in compressed files. Will the Puppy run faster if they are loaded into RAM uncompressed, as in my live Puppies?

That should probably be asked elsewhere on the forum. But between the obvious savings of not needing to continuously decompress things, and the cost of having less RAM free for other things (such as file buffers for persistent disks), I'm not sure.

Linux distros use NTFS-3G, which is open source.

If you still don't like it, you should be able to move the files in C:/your-puppy to the root of an ext3 disk and it should "just work". (Keep in mind that if you do this, LICK won't be able to delete the files when you uninstall the distro).

I am unfamiliar with Windows, but I know that it is not exactly famous for it's security. The savefile for my Puppy in Win 10 is ext4, and is, as far as I know, not normally accessible from within Windoze. Are there any special security issues regarding the use of Lick? Any situations not usually met when using a Puppy?

Sorry, I didn't get an email notification for your message Sad

The simple answer: no, you don't need to worry about that.

The detailed answer:

The only thing I can think of possibly happening is a ransomware locking down your save file. But even then, a lot of ransomwares only care about stuff in "My Documents", since that's where the user's data usually is. Encrypting everything on hard drives would just make encrypting and decrypting take a lot longer.

There's a theoretical attack of malware detecting a Linux install and modifying it. However, since LICK-style installs are so rare, it's more likely that a malware would search for an EXT4 partition and change things there.

Hello
I would like to change the boot order to lick first and windows second but can't find any entry. Where is it and can I do it. I loaded xenial64 onto win7 on a dell e6230.
Thanks

Find the file C:/lickgrub.cfg (if you installed LICK to another drive, this might be on that drive) (if this file doesn't exist, let me know). In that file, change "set default=0" to "set default=1" (or the number of times you want it to automatically press "down" for you)

Any help.

In that case, the process is somewhat confusing, so I won't write it out in text. Follow this video, but look for the bcdedit entry with the description "LICK Boot Loader".

I tried using Lick today to install Mint and got an error No Kernel. Is there a way to fix it?
thanks

I tried changing the default to 1 but Windows XP still the first option and Tahrpup second.

Code:

## start header
insmod part_gpt
insmod part_msdos
insmod ntfs

set timeout=5
set default=1

insmod all_video
if loadfont /grub/fonts/unicode.pf2 ; then
    set gfxmode=auto
    set gfxpayload=keep
    terminal_output gfxterm
fi

menuentry "Windows" {
    insmod chain
    search --set=root --file /EFI/Microsoft/boot/bootmgfw.efi
    chainloader /EFI/Microsoft/boot/bootmgfw.efi
}
## end header
