ok...  i just found out that installing "unionfs-fuse"

Package: unionfs-fuse
Version: 1.0-1ubuntu1

changes a lot..

i still drop into a busybox but with different messages...

/init: line 7: can't open /dev/sr0: No medium found


Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on

  using casper > 1.340 causes live system to drop to busybox (

Status in casper package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Release:        16.04

  Package: casper
  Version: 1.376

  what should happen: the live system should boot properly
  what happens: the live system drops into busybox

  i created a systemimage of kubuntu 16.04 with "systemback" 
  the live system boots into busybox and displays the following message:

  "(initramfs) /cow format specified as aufs and no support found"

  i had this problem before on kubuntu 14.04.03

  it seems that downgrading to casper 1.340 resolves this problem (but
  downgrading on 16.04 is problematic / not possible)

  the current installed version of casper is 1.376
