no idea; and, just to be unambigues: the '/filesystem.squashfs' error is

Sorry, I should have said "error" and not "errors". I realize it's the
startpar error that matters. The rest are (cosmetic) warnings.
Does the ISO you produced boots properly
on your system, both VM and hardware?
yes. can you try it on some more hardware of yours to rule out specific
issues with your system?
I can, but I'll have to wait until this evening. All I have here at work
is my laptop and a bunch of Apple hardware. Apple hardware /really/
doesn't like booting from anything USB.
But... it does the same thing in a VM, so I'm not convinced it's my
hardware. It /is/ a VM running on my same laptop, so maybe that has
something to do with it. With this thought, I turned off hardware
virtualization (VT-x) and even disabled PAE/NX. I also cut it down to 1
processor from 2. The same startpar error occurs.
Just to remind us, I have no problem whatsoever working with squeeze
images, either in a VM or on this laptop's hardware.
also, can you build an image where the necessary components (live-boot
init script for the beginning should be enough, maybe also live-config
initscript later at some point) are run with set -x so that we can see
the 'debug' log, so we can try to understand where and what the actual
Sure! I'll have to explore how to run live-boot's init script with "set
-x", but I'll definitely do that and make the debug log available.
