Re: SSD Boot Process

The Sabrent worked with several SSD brands and models I tested, but it didn't work with some hard drives. The older Eluteng model with the black SATA connector has been tested with a lot more drives (both HDD and SSD) and I have yet to find a drive it does not work with (the newer model with blue S...

Re: SSD Boot Process

That Sabrent adapter worked well with SSD when I tried it, but this is the one I use now: TNP USB 3.0 to SATA Adapter Cable (6 inch). It seems to be the generic version of the old, black Eluteng adapter that is no longer available. You prefer this why? The 6" form factor is attractive for the Pi, a...

Re: SSD Boot Process

Your problem is the "[ TIME ] timed out waiting for device ... " error. Adding a bootdelay should resolve that (if not then you'll need to change the USB/SATA enclosure for your SSD). It was worth a shot, but no cigar. Disk Management, created new simple volume, reformatted SSD, ran Etcher, flashed...

Try adding

Code: Select all

bootdelay=5
to /boot/cmdline.txt
I didn't try this just yet given what I've just described, but would you still? I could have another go at it... number six or seven, I've lost count.

Re: SSD Boot Process

Did it reboot successfully after updating the OS on your first try? Yep, everything looked good as best as I knew, though I hadn't done very much between the first running of the SSD, its updates, subsequent reboot, before my failed efforts to clone the SD card onto the SSD. Write the image to the ...

Re: SSD Boot Process

Things aren't so rosy. Started over: reformatted the brand new SSD, ran Etcher with [2019-04-08-raspbian-stretch-full.zip] flashed to SSD, connected SSD, powered RPi, boot looked normal, set location, did updates, restarted, and here is where things have gone a bit off the rails; i.e., after Raspbia...

Re: SSD Boot Process

Well, it was worth a shot. The NOOBS install done originally did result in a choice of 2 flavors at boot which in time I grew to ignore, always opting for the Debian flavor. From what I read and what little sunk into my skull, it isn't sounding all that hopeful, at least at the end of the day. Maybe...

Re: SSD Boot Process

@B.Goode
Thank you for the reply and the great news!

It was a little surprising to see that there were 7 partitions.

Presumably, these were 7 partitions on the 32GB SD card; I had no idea. Are these transparent to the user?

Re: Configuring RealVNC server

Hello sconemad, Thank you very much for the reply and the kind advice. That worked; however, I had to delete the fist instance of the connection on VNC Viewer, and to create a new instance/ connection, or at least, that is what I ended up doing to get the connection not to time out. As long as the s...

Re: Configuring RealVNC server

@sconemad
Thanks, I will have a go at both, perhaps. Is there a link to the outline procedure for option 1? Also, I'm retired and have been using only the free personal home version of RealVNC. Will both options be allowed for this type of account?

Kind regards,

Kelly
