Pi 4B won't boot from USB

Thu Jun 24, 2021 3:43 am

I have a Pi 4B that has been upgraded to the 29 Apr 2021 firmware, bit it will not boot from my external SSD (that contains the Wolfanoz Retromania 1TB image) that I have put into an enclosure.

How do I get it to boot from my external SSD?

According to the bootloader display:

"USB MSD timed out after 20 seconds."

Using the same SSD in the same enclosure, does the Raspberry Pi 4B successfully boot Raspberry Pi OS from USB?: Booting a Pi-4B via USB

If so, you would probably be better off asking the author of the Wolfanoz Retromania 1TB image for help.
