It's also easily hackable, in case there's something you need to change. I would be the guy to talk to about that. (author of refractasnapshot and refractainstaller)

fsmithred wrote:What should work for you is if you install live-build, and run it with the --bootstrap-copy option. It will make a debian-live style iso with your installed system, similar to what refractasnapshot does. At least it used to do that.

This live cd installs the live system to the target system and so my installed packages remained after installation although there are options to remove them if you wish. I don't have the free time time to check the debian live-cd but it might be worth looking into. I keep my own personalized iso images as I seem to do a lot of re-installing and it helps.
