Hi, I have created a bootable USB Kali Live 2021.3. I'm using it right now to type this post and everything works like a charm.

I very carefully followed the instructions to add persistence to the usb. All commands worked ok. From within Kali live I can see the Persistence volume and it contains persistence.conf with the correct contents i.e. / union (without quotes). See below.

However, when I boot and select the 'Live with Persistence' option it gets as far as the dragon logo and then gets stuck. I've added some details below on my volumes.

I doubt that it matters but I'm booting on an Acer Aspire 3 laptop. I'd be grateful if anyone can spot the problem. Thanks.

This is the contents of persistence volume:
