Re: is it possible to use wheezy CD to rescue stretch




Thanks, i browse Help of wheezy CD, i don't know what rescue it can do

its advanced option allows you to specify boot option before boot,
vmlinuz, initrd, root=/dev/sda2 ...

(my stretch is installed at sda2)

but initrd on CD is intended for install, not for my purpose

no luck, i may have to find other way

Not always. Wheezy's kernel and e2fsprogs tools do not support newer
ext4 features such as csum_metadata which are enabled by default on ext4
filesystems created by Stretch's tools.
