K14 isn't a boot script, it's a shutdown script (hence the 'K'). You need to 
only look for scripts that start with an 'S'.

If the init process sees that the first character is an 'S' it passes 'start' to 
the linked script, if it sees a 'K' it passes a 'stop' parameter. You can rename 
the symlink to lower-case 's' or 'k' to get the effect you require.
