.imgPTN23 OpenSuse-based image fails to fully boot with error ” Don’t know how to handle ‘root=live:LABEL=EASY2BOOT’ “

If you convert OpenSuse-based ISOs to .imgPTN23 files using the MPI Tool Kit (v0.103 or previous) you may see this error when you UEFI-boot.

This issue should be fixed if you use MakePartImage v0.104 to make the .imgPTN23 file (for UEFI).

Workarounds:

  1. In the OpenSuse boot menu – select the menu entry and then press ‘e’ to edit it – then change the string LABEL to CDLABEL. Then press F10 to boot. See screenshot above.
  2. With the .imgPTN23 file switched in, edit the \boot\grub2\grub.cfg file and replace all occurrences of :LABEL with :CDLABEL. This will permanently fix the issue.
  3. Don’t use a .imgPTN file – just directly UEFI-boot to agFM and then select the ISO file or use ‘Ventoy for Easy2Boot’.

Note: Legacy booting is not supported by the .imgPTN file.
