This has been answered a number of times online, these two look like a pretty good place to start: What's the proper way to prepare chroot to recover a broken Linux installation? How to restore a system after accidentally removing all kernels? If you have specific problems while going through a tutorial you can create a question for that (provided it ...

Boot it (in virtualbox) and press esc to bring up the grub menu and from there edit the command-line. Once it's running edit the grub config and run update-grub.

If you make a usb boot from Windows using rufus, please use dd way to write your iso file to the usb as younes said. No need to enable legacy boot. I use thinkpad x220 and still get UEFI on boot.

You must use the "dd" command, I've tried with Win32Imager and gotten far but mkfs has issues, install guide even says to use "dd". Easiest is to fresh install Arch, download BlackArch; sudo dd bs=512M if=blackarch-linux.iso of=/dev/sda ;

It appears part of the old gpt table is persisting, likely because the iso write is much smaller than the flash drive. So you should completely wipe it first. First make sure its entirely unmounted: umount /dev/sdb* Then delete existing fs on drive ( arch wiki suggestion) wipefs --all /dev/sdb Overwrite entire drive dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb Now ...

As I don't have a dedicated USB pendrive for my ISOs, so I usually end doing it very often and had to come up with a quick and reliable way to do it. Most of the time I do this for my Arch Linux or Arch Bang installs. So I'm using those distributions for the ISO names. This is what I do: dd if=/path/to/image.iso of=/dev/sd[usb-device] bs=[bytes-size] ...

I have never had any problem doing anything in a live session with persistence that I could in an installed OS. Due to using the live stick for primarily data recovery however I have not done a lot besides adding some packages. As far as the limited number of flavors goes us the "standard" ISO. This will actually install a system with no DE on your stick ...

I have not tried that on a live session with persistence but it should not be any different than a regular install. The live CDs are quite limited but you can add another flavor if you want. Removing one would be a bugger. There is the "standard" live CD. This is not truly live. It installs the basic Debian desktop stuff and offers the usual DEs as ...

You can use the current Debian LiveCD, the one with non-free, which I recommend so you have the firmware for what ever you plug into, or the regular one without. Would recommend a 8G stick. dd image to stick. Add a partition after the image leaving a bit of breathing room for the image (a few MB). Label that partition; persistence In that ...

~$ sudo apt-get install dd_rescue dd_rescue-gui ~$ dd_rescue /dev/sda /dev/sdb -v ; Syntax: utility /source/drive /destination/drive --verbose Comment: shows progress and error checking so you know if it is acceptable or hanging up somewhere. You can also add b= whatever size blocks you want.

You should be able to create it with dd on a Mac. I have done this successfully with an Arch Linux ISO. Make sure the output destination is the USB device, not a partition on the device.
