Looking at 5.10 "Rebooting the system", this contains more information, 
and it should also point to further information, at least the afterboot(8) 
manpage for a lot more data.

I'd suggest renaming the existing 5.10 from "Rebooting the system" to 
"Things to check after the first complete boot".

Then add 5.11 "Rebooting the system" which basically has data from 6.7.

Sounds good - as first section before the existing 5.1.

Me neither.

How about putting it into 13. "Using removable media" and rename that to 
"Using removable media and disks"?

Or adding a new chapter "Disks and Filesystems" before the existin 13. 
which could take this information, and which should be merged with lots of 
data from the "Disks & 
Filesystems" section of

But maybe do one thing at a time...
