You could use USB with persistency on a computer that can run it, install 4.9 kernel update the kernel with live-kernel-updater and then install on the other system.

What Adrian said is pretty easy. I have a video on my channel (I think I use antix in the video but the tools and process are the same).

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

The links were helpful.... made things easy.
Works well, except lot of USB text/info during the boot. Is there a way to clean up?

You could install MX-Plymouth and have it covered at boot with some distraction. :)

Use MX-Boot-Options to set up Plymouth.

you can't use plymouth on the live system.

and I don't think you can suppress the live boot text messages. most of that stuff is before handoff to the linux init system...
