When booting from a live USB, and selecting the default boot mode, I get the black screen when I go to use the startx command. With some Google searching, I have been able to use a temporary fix by pressing TAB at the boot menu and typing (xforcevesa nopic noapci nosplash irqpoll), and with this, startx works 100%. However, when I use this method, I'm not able to use Persistence Mode, nor is this method a permanent fix, so every time I boot into BT5, I'll need to enter the command.

Persistence Mode, I want to see if I can use to store webpages offline without having to use another USB drive.

Anything I can do to enable Persistence Mode, and if possible, make the startx fix permanent?
