Alright, I understand what you mean and you are right. Because you are
talking about the bootloader config.

Could not find kernel image:persistent.
The right boot parameter is "live persistent"
'live' is a label of an entry in the bootloaders config. after a
bootloader entry, parameters can be specified, such as 'persistent' or
the manual says that you should use 'persistent' as a boot parameter,
that means that you add it after the label of the entry of the
bootloader config that you want to boot, not as a replacement of the
entry (also, that is what the word 'parameter' means anyhow).
But what I'm talking about or what I meant is that from a "debian-live
for dummies" point of view, or "user downloading a pre-built image" you
need to type "live persistent" at the boot prompt, otherwise you can't
boot the live image.
I know the manual is not focused on the mortal user but it is the main
point of reference to all things live related. Many users may be
interested in that small but important detail.
