comment What does exit 99 means?
The shell, and most other tools, including make, treat any non zero exit value as an error.

comment How can I find out about “rootfs”
On debian, /etc/mtab is a symlink to /proc/mounts. Otherwise, you would not see the rootfs at all.

comment What does exit 99 means?
Not quite - 99 is not zero, and so indicates that the program failed for some reason.

comment I can see my LVM but I can't initialize it. Missing UUID of one of the disks
@Dalif, those device names are not stable and can change over a reboot, even if you don't add or remove any drives. Just because you gained an sdd when you added the new disk does not mean that drive is the new disk. Why would you think removing the new disk would change anything? You have unknown device because one of the old disks has been formatted and is no longer recognized.

comment System Halt on REBOOT, Shutdown & Restarts as expected
Ahh, in that case, the kernel may be leaving the device in a state it does not reset properly from.

That's kind of the whole point of suspend...

comment What is a master mode?
Where did you see these terms? Wireless modes are either "ad hoc", or "infrastructure", not "master" or "managed".

The message indicates that either the card or slot it is in are broken. I don't see how what kernel you use could affect this.

comment Why is dd so slow on raw device, so fast on filesystem (writing on USB key)?
@Bananguin, ok, now you are just trolling.

comment Why is dd so slow on raw device, so fast on filesystem (writing on USB key)?
@Bananguin, your argument is equivalent to getting in a car accident on the way to work, and claiming that working causes car accidents. It may be true that had you not gotten in the car at that time to go to work, you would not have been in that particular accident, but you can not conclude that working causes car accidents. It just so happens that is where you were going when you got in one. Here, it just so happens that the filesystem put the data in part of the disk that is faster than where the OP dd'd to. That doesn't mean that the filesystem magically is faster than dd in general.

comment File has bytes - appears to be empty
Then there you go; it crashed and rebooted before the data hit the disk, so it was lost.
