    Can the boot files and the persistent image reside on two different drives?

    Hello, I have installed KNOPPIX_V7.4.0DVD-2014-08-01 on a usb formatted as fat32 (/dev/sdb1). The drive has already a SysRescueCD installation on it, so I have uncompressed the iso to a folder KNOPPIX_V7.4.0DVD-2014-08-01-EN and I can boot Knoppix fine from syslinux and I also have a 500MB knoppix-data.img.

    All works well apart from the fact that it's quite slow. So I have tried to boot the image from a copy of the iso on the Windows partition (/dev/sda2) and I boot it from syslinux like this:

    Code:
    LABEL knoppix64
    KERNEL /KNOPPIX_V7.4.0DVD-2014-08-01-EN/boot/isolinux/linux64
    INITRD /KNOPPIX_V7.4.0DVD-2014-08-01-EN/boot/isolinux/minirt.gz 
    APPEND apm=power-off nomce libata.force=noncq hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 loglevel=1  lang=uk bootfrom=/dev/sda2/Users/ottavio.owner-PC/Downloads/KNX.iso
    However in doing so it doesn't recognize the persistent image on sdb1.

    I've tried the old (deprecated) cheat code:
    Code:
    home=/KNOPPIX_V7.4.0DVD-2014-08-01-EN/KNOPPIX/knoppix-data.img
    But it's not recognized.

    Is there any way to force syslinux to load a file from sda2 but to mount the settings from sdb1?

    Thanks

    The init script in the minirt has to be changed, see http://knoppix.net/forum/threads/307...ooting-from-CD

    You can make the change in the script, but you will have to remaster.
