comment How to disable Grub's menu from showing up after failed boot
This is wrong answer. Per this: gnu.org/software/grub/manual/html_node/… : ‘GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT’ - Wait this many seconds for a key to be pressed before displaying the menu. It has nothing to do with failed boot

Thanks... I think I'm understanding now how aufs could be used to protect the flash drive. I'm still failing to understand why LVM, but your answer is the best so far, and it doesn't seem that there is a better solution at this time
