CorePlus and waitusb option
« on: April 24, 2017, 01:08:48 AM »
My own little PEBCAK:

Burned a bootable micro-sd card for ver 8.0 X86 with CorePlus and used the USB-HDD option checkbox.

I got over-zealous and dutifully added waitusb=10 to the custom boot option line.  Not necessary, but thought so since I was essentially doing a usb boot.

When I checked my bootline at
/mnt/sdb1/boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf

I noticed there were TWO instances of waitusb - mine and the installer's.

I removed my redundant waitusb option, and just left the installer's own waitusb=5 that appeared before the UUID's.

I guess I like things tidy. :)

The installer checks whether your media is a removable drive (USB).
By default, it'll add "waitusb=5" to the config file if it is one.

It surely does, so I removed my redundancy, and won't jump the gun and add it myself next time. :)
