i think you misunderstood me
i use the computer as is
i boot kanotix from the CD (KANOTIX 2007 Thorhammer RC6) and use the computer
using the unionFS and the permanent home i installed some extra programs & drivers (including nvidia and a new Wlan driver)
and im using it as is
noting to rescue

but i cant upgrade to Excalibur as its bigger then a CD and i dont have a DVD drive

For persistent home you need an usb stick anyway. Then you can boot from it too.

Try this script, it partitions the usb drive, first for the iso, rest for persistence.

thank you for taking the time to read and answer me

i suspect we are have 2 unconnected conversations
if you are willing to spend the time to help me we need to synchronize them

i have been using kanotix for ~6y (cebit, 2005,Thorhammer )
i like it and see no reason to replays it

at the moment i use Thorhammer RC6 + persistent home on the HD

RC7 fails to boot
will excalibur boot on a computer that Thorhammer RC7 fails to boot on ?
if yes is ther a method to boot from a CD and redirect the sequence to an ISO on the HD?

i think i read the wrong part of the first link you gave me (PLoP) i think it will alow to boot an ISO from the HD/usb. ill do some more reading

edit 2
the bios cant find the HD
grub cant find the HD
