Thanks for understanding.
I realised that the shipped livcd is not a highly modified version of Ubuntu. The progress is quite smooth. The boot loader, rootfs, partitions for nvidia and amd restricted drivers are all done. All I need to do is to write a compatible script in the initramfs so it will handle the merge of filesystem using unionfs like you guys did and couple of xmbc variables (probably just copy and paste). It really does not matter if the system is located on a usb disk or a local hard drive as long as the right module can be loaded into kernel which is the job of udev.
I hope it will finish in one day or two then I can post it here. After that I will try to make it network (san) boot which I have quite a few experience with, but it may be tricky since it needs to detect and bring up the network card before mounting the disk.
