I think the packages mdadm and lvm2 should be installed into the minimal-live iso image, as it is announced as a rescue tool. lvm2 - Linux Logical Volume Manager mdadm - tool to administer Linux MD arrays (software RAID) Both of them are needed to properly mount disk partitions that use RAID and/or LVM. I needed to use them to repair a machine with LVM over RAID whose installed grub was broken. Although not tried on my own, probably cryptsetup is also a requirement to rescue systems with encrypted disks. cryptsetup - disk encryption support - startup scripts Probably, taking a look at the packages the debian-installer uses and also to the packages that get installed in the initramfs by the initramfs-tools package will give more ideas of packages that are usually needed to bootstrap a system from scratch. Thank you very much for your work.
