Re: Raspberry Pi 4 usb boot?

@JMKS -If you are only using NOOBS to achieve booting to USB, then you can create a file called 'autoboot.txt' on the NOOBS partition with the following line in it: boot_partition=6 This will avoid booting into NOOBS and will start your OS as fast as if NOOBS wasn't there. After installing to /dev/...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 usb boot?

Ah, so, after literally MONTHS during which a thought that hybrid SD/USB booting required some kind of overcomplicated 3rd-party tools (and also failing to do it once), I can confirm that simply choosing "/dev/sda" during installation with NOOBS yields what I was looking for (until full USB-boot wil...

Re: Running Raspbian from USB Devices : Made Easy

Well, I definitely can differentiate "stuck at splash logo" (that multi-colored image at boot) vs. "logged-in CLI" with Bash, which I set to boot to. And it was the former. Nevermind that bricked OS, I just want it to work for good. What's the simplest guide to setting booting via USB, probably with...

Re: Raspberry PI 4 - USB Boot

they can do so ALREADY, it just takes an SD-card that is ONLY used for booting from that hard drive or ssd. hence there is no pressure to provide a solution that doesn't require an SD-card. Care to provide a link to simple guide? And maybe stick it also etc. Because, I can live with SD card plugged...

Re: Running Raspbian from USB Devices : Made Easy

As I remember it: sudo ./usb-boot sudo ./sdc-boot /dev/sda reboot Supposedly booted to correct SD + external-HDD configuration (I have not inspected it at that moment) sudo apt-update && apt-upgrade sudo raspi-config, then change some params, especially boot to CLI instead of GUI reboot not booting ...

Re: Running Raspbian from USB Devices : Made Easy

For me, it didn't go as planned :( (so far, at least). RPi4, so no direct USB boot. My expectations: given working system on SD, clone it to USB-HDD, set bootloader once, and "forget about it". Reality: after cloning and setting bootloader I booted from that config, updated system and set booting to...
