but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should "consider".

You guys are so advanced! I'm using no cheatcodes at all!

@Ed_P, what's the meaning of reboot=cold?

@ wead...
initrd=boot\syslinux\initrd.xz
What does it do?
:hmmm: I do NOT have the "right" to tell anyone what they should do...
but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should "consider".

A cold boot is similar to booting after the machine has been turned off, all the RAM is initialized. Not sure when I started using it or who suggested it to solve what problem I was having but I've been using for some time.

@n0ctilucient
initrd.xz is the first boot step. It will be read, decompressed and stored in ram, building a skeleton of folder "/" and directing the computer to load the necessary minimal working application.

You can decompress it and take a look at it.

How does your /boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg file compare with the /porteus/porteus-v4.0-x86_64.cfg file? Do you put any cheatcodes in there too?
