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?

They don't compare.
