Fixing SUSE Tumbleweed Live ISO boot hang

SneWs's picture

I had some issues with the SUSE Tumbleweed live image when booting from a USB stick. I used the live-fat-stick (https://github.com/cyberorg/live-fat-stick) from Ubuntu to create my USB stick.
If you get a hang during boot where Journaling won't complete you most likely are hitting this issue. What happens here is that it tries to mount a persistence partition, and this will fail and it will just try and try again without succeeding...

To work around this issue you need to edit the grub boot config and add the following line.
kiwi_hybridpersistent=no

This will disable the step of trying to mount the persistent partition.
