    Creating a boot disc for my current system (VM related)


    I'm trying to find an alternative to plpbt which doesn't support USB 3.0.

    so you give us a link to some other thread instead of explaining the problem to us?
    that's the equivalent of me doing this:

    From what I gather about the boot process:

    Code:
    thegeekstuff.com/2011/02/linux-boot-process/
    ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-linuxboot/
    I need to put on a cd grub and the kernel. Then, in the stage of running /sbin/init, I should run it somehow from the USB 3 flash drive.

    SystemRescueCd supposes to do just that:

    Code:
    system-rescue-cd.org/manual/Booting_a_broken_linux_system_on_the_hard_disk/
    but somehow it can't find /sbin/init on my mint partition. In the rescue shell, when I mount the mint drive ls doesn't seem to find it either. Only, when I chroot into the drive, ls can find it. /sbin/init is a link to /lib/systemd/systemd. I'm not sure why it would make a difference, though.

    @nihili, it's to prevent duplicates and share the ideas (if there would be any) on the other forum as well.
