Re: Can enabling USB boot hurt my Pie and can i still boot from an SD card?

Good luck with the 2T disk. Let us know how that goes and what works Having looked at the WD Pi Drive details, the cable is just a USB3 cable, no controller. So if my 2TB USB3 drive doesn't currently boot with the Pi I'm going to have to keep the boot partition on an SD card. Oh well, at least it w...

Re: Can enabling USB boot hurt my Pie and can i still boot from an SD card?

I have a Pi 2B that has the boot partiton on SD card and everything else on a USB disk. It has been running happily like that since I got it to replace an ageing laptop doing the same thing (boot from internal CF card and run on external SATA disks via a PC Card interface). Sometime I will replace ...

Re: Can enabling USB boot hurt my Pie and can i still boot from an SD card?

I did not set the OTP to "program_usb_mode=1". This was a test of "By default, this is SD card boot followed by USB device boot". As you can see by my own post; that confused me as well. By "USB Device Boot" what that means (mostly) is a Zero or Zero W which is waiting to have a boot setup injected...

It was the very first post on the subject I have seen, so stow your sarcasm. I neither knew about the "several long time members who answered this question in several topics on this forum" There is a thing on the internet called a "Search Engine". It can be used to find the answers to questions (ig...

Re: Can enabling USB boot hurt my Pie and can i still boot from an SD card?

Well, all efforts to boot Raspbian Jessie from USB by usb harddisk 2.0 or stick 2.0 are a failure. I did not set the OTP to "program_usb_mode=1". This was a test of "By default, this is SD card boot followed by USB device boot". The image on SD card mounted inside a usb sdcard reader failed to boot ...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3B not recognized as such by servers

I use the default repositories, so no I dont compile the boinc client.

I google around a bit and see that after Pi 2 there seems to be just a plain header being sent.
One that doesnt mention the pi specific hardware or OS.

Re: Can enabling USB boot hurt my Pie and can i still boot from an SD card?

Is this true, will burning that OTP allow booting from BOTH SDcard and USB?

That would be worth trying. Right now it's try it and maybe I wont have a pi anymore.

Raspberry Pi 3B not recognized as such by servers

On a raspberrypi 3B running Raspian Jessie I run boinc projects. Lately I have been getting no work because the pi 3B is not recognized for what it is. It is only detected as: Model (this is blank) OS Linux 4.9.35-v7+ Capability CPUS: 4, Intel GPU: 0, AMD: 0, NVIDIA: 0 I install linux headers from t...

Re: Release: Ubeify Desktop Media Player For Raspberry Pi

Very nice interface, as in pretty. Unfortunately it is missing some key features that omxplayer simply refuses to allow. Like removing entries from any list or preventing continous play of the playlist on exit of Ubeify. At one point I had 4 copies of the same song running at once and had to reboot ...
