Yes you do have to be root to run my script to make the BIOS-USB.

You did not do this if you are getting a messaged that is telling you it didn't find the dsdt.
sudo cp DSDT.aml /etc/initramfs-tools/
As for your Kernel.... You know there is a way to do it
I don't know step by step but if you google you could find it.
What you need to do is boot into a Live CD then you can change to the root directory of your harddrive (( chroot maybe)). This way your kernel will be from the Live CD but the root file system will be the one on your harddive. Then you can build a new kernel. Read this in the Debian instructions to "Install from a running Linux OS."
There is also a command to build a new normal Kerenel. Just a copy of the one you have. Then you boot into that and mess with that kernel. If it messed up then you can just boot into your first Kernel you have not changed.
