Description

It has been reported that:

on boot, if persistence is enabled but read-only is not selected, the system hangs on read-only usb sticks

Perhaps read-only should be automatically selected on such media, or at least it should show an error message.

Retitling to the way to resolve it, instead of stating the problem. This could become an "Easy" task, just by adding a bit more guidance to this ticket, btw.
