Be sure that you run sudo update-grub immediately after you make any changes to the partition table. That is not necessary in some cases but it is always safe to do it. In your case it is better to make all changes from your new Linux installation: delete a partition and then update grub. If you are going to use Live CD instead you need to update grub ...

Boot the alternate SD Solaris instance and add the line to its /rpool/boot/grub/grub.cfg file. Beware that the file might be overwritten by Solaris should your change something in the boot configuration of this Solaris instance using bootadm or similar.

Probably it depends on the video mode and zero page (struct bootparam, documented here, it also includes struct screen_info) setup prepared by a bootloader (GRUB) and BIOS. bootparam is passed to decompress_kernel() as the first argument. The actual function of debug_putstr() is __putstr() (Note that it's enabled only when CONFIG_X86_VERBOSE_BOOTUP is ...

You're telling the kernel to look for a root directory in: root=/dev/mapper/triagia-kaliboot. I think you need to change this. Edit the kernel parameter used by GRUB2 to find a root directory by changing this line in your /etc/default/grub: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="root=/dev/mapper/triagia-kaliroot" . Since you are using LVM for your /boot partition ...

The MBR gets written to sector 0 of the disk and is only 512 bytes long. Nearly everything else boot-related in any Linux distro┬╣ is residing in /boot. For a more extensive discussion on MBR boot, look at IBM's Linux: Into the boot process document. ┬╣ Any Linux distro to my knowledge...

For EFI boot you need to form a specific structure of the image's filesystem, not just bootsector (since it's unused), so have a look at Ubuntu's live-helper scripts (my guess) or examine mki-copy-efiboot script (the part of mkimage which I wrote and use). In case you just need a custom rescue image, not neccessarily an Ubuntu-based one, you might like my ...

Try: menuentry "Debian Live 8.1 amd64 XFCE Desktop" { set isoname="debian-live-8.1.0-amd64-xfce-desktop.iso" set isopath="/boot/iso" set isofile="${isopath}/${isoname}" echo "Using ${isoname}..." loopback loop $isofile linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz boot=live findiso=${isofile} config quiet splash initrd (loop)/live/initrd.img } I've always hated UUID. ...
