You can boot most "rescue cd" live distros and pick "boot next
partition" or whatever, and it will boot the next found partition with
the kernel from the rescue cd.

Which brings up the fact that it would be nice for there to be a Devuan
rescue CD (and thumbdrive) that can find all possible OSes and boot to
your choice, using the live CD's kernel. Can Refracta already do that?
