Boot from attached volume
Is there any easy way to boot a droplet from an existing volume instead of a boot image?
I’d like to be able to spin up a machine and tear it down again - and maintain all the installed packages without having to re-install from apt each time.
I don’t necessarily want a custom image for this, as I want the whole disk context to be persistent (while the actual droplet can be destroyed)
