Subject Re: Re: Remastered Lubuntu doesn't boot

I have been looking at an ISO built with PinguyBuilder and it does not seem to support any cheat code parameter to specify the name of the ISO file. This means that the only way to boot it as you want to do from an E2B DVD is to extract the contents of the ISO to root of the E2B drive. If it works, you could then remove those folders from the remastered ISO.
However, if you are booting other ubuntu-based ISOs, they may find the \casper folder on the root of the DVD instead of the \casper folder inside the mounted ubuntu ISO, and so they would all boot to your remastered files instead of the files inside the ISO.
I suggest making a special .mnu file, extracting all the files from the remastered ISO (so the .iso file is not needed):

title Start PinguyOS 18.04.1 Full LTS
kernel /casper/vmlinuz file=/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper quiet splash --
initrd /casper/initrd.gz
boot

This works, but if the \casper folder is renamed and the menu adjusted, it no longer boots and so the other ubuntu ISOs may get 'confused' still! See https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=35567 for how to modify it to boot from a different folder.
