Re: kernel panic, live system boot not possible

Please replace the images with thumbnails or links and read our Code of Conduct

I'd say try to run a memtest, and from the old kernel attempt I'd hazard a guess that the root partition wasn't written correctly and you will want to chroot in and properly mount all paths and reinstall linux, given that you don't have dying RAM. Regarding the Live USB failure, since this seems to be an unetbootin created stick, did you heed the warning in … UNetbootin ?
