I'm not sure what the quote above means? Is the problem that you are not able to boot your remastered Linux Mint? To check the boot files, the easiest thing would by to run the bootinfoscript. See the link below, might help you understand or post it here.
I Believe it has more to do with the the way remastersys makes a copy of the filesystem to add to the ISO file or perhaps I have moved the setting on my OS to the point I messed up the boot loader of the installed OS if thats the case.
Yes I have used Virtualbox before I had an internal hard drive dock installed on my computer. I prefer a real computer over Virtual. I use it more for running windows from there now in days.
Did you know that its possible to turn any external drive into a bootable usb hard drive as if you were using a CD or DVD? The difference is that you can add or remove stuff from there.
Anyways the main problem is not the live installer but the boot loader after the OS has been installed in another hard drive showing that GNU Grub Menu.
In case your not sure what I mean by that. Then you may download the ISO I made and you'll see what I mean
Yes this Iso is out of date. Keep in mind that this is a concept only but I it still needs work on it. Ill explain the rest after you reply.
mhmmmm alright I'll try that bootinfoscript and see what I get.
