Unlike a frugal install, there is no need to remaster a full install to change what is there, it is changed, good or bad. There is no layering system used, so there is no initrd directory in the root of a full install.

The remastering is only needed for convenience, if you plan on transfering the full install to another machine with a live CD.

Or you can choose to just make an iso and use any storage
device to transfer.

Yes, that is true in most cases, my new machine’s bios (gigabyte) for example, will not recognize and load from usb sticks, so we have to use a live CD. My dad’s new As Rock motherboard will. I am hoping for a bios update.

Not that I'm aware of.

The remaster for full consists of 5 files; 3 of them I copied to the
same locations on a Luci install.

Don't have a Luci install right now; I'll do another and give
directions.
Thanks. I didn't know about those.
