Why are you trying to put live-server-amd64.iso there? instead of the classic .iso?

I don't believe, putting live-server iso there will do anything good at all.

What do you want to put an Ubuntu iso there for?

why this?
It isn't listed on
I did find it on:

717M does fit so good.

What for?
hd-media installer needs it
debian-installer component to scan hard drives for an installer ISO image.
This is used in installer builds for removable USB drives.

higher level goal: hd-media/boot.img is an fs I can mount, cp a replacement boot loader syslinux.cfg file, done.
.iso is a read only fs, so not as easy to replace the file.
