Miker, thank you. but I came to that point already following step by step the booting from usb guide.mikerr wrote:I've had a USB booting Jessie Lite image up for a while at
That can be written direct to USB disk with win32diskimager
Then i saved myself one with dd to save the hassle of rsync it again in case i need it.
What i wasn't able to achieve so far is netbooting a Pi3.
I tried with the guide on the website and it didn't netboot the client.
I tried with Dougie alternative way and it didn't netboot the client.
I tried to read an alternative website but that was using different software and i had to google translate it from german.
Either i'm encountering a bug or my new pi3s are broken (but the do usb boot)
or some passages of those netboot howto were not explained clear enough for beginners.
I just want to see the magic happen once, then i can try to adapt one variable at the time.
In this way, an image of a running os for pi3 capable to boot another pi3 would be gold.
As an example, i read somewhere that the fixed ip in pi3 / jessie must be put in dhcpcd.conf instead of the usual debian /etc/network/interfaces
So i did, but in this way i got some complaints when i tried to test my two pi3 (the server and the client) detached from the rest of the network as one Dougie suggestion was.
