For purpose of sharing the info, I bought a WD My Passport SSD 512G and it does not allow my rpi4 to boot.

Have you tried this procedure?

Practically the same. I ran:

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade
sudo reboot
Then ran 'sudo rpi-eeprom-update' and got:

Code: Select all

BCM2711 detected
Dedicated VL805 EEPROM detected
BOOTLOADER: up-to-date
CURRENT: Fri Dec 11 11:15:17 UTC 2020 (1607685317)
 LATEST: Thu Sep  3 12:11:43 UTC 2020 (1599135103)
 FW DIR: /lib/firmware/raspberrypi/bootloader/default
VL805: up-to-date
CURRENT: 000138a1
 LATEST: 000138a1
Having "current" more recent than "latest" should be ok, right?
Then ran 'sudo vcgencmd bootloader_config' and got:

Code: Select all

[all]
BOOT_UART=0
WAKE_ON_GPIO=1
POWER_OFF_ON_HALT=0

[all]
BOOT_ORDER=0xf41
The missing lines do not appears to be related to the boot process.
Then I flashed my SD card onto my SSD using "SD Card Copier".
Then ran 'sudo shutdown -halt', unplugged the power for few seconds, plugged it back in.
Result: 4 long green flash, 4 quick green flash. (without much surprise I must say)

I would use Raspberry Pi EEPROM Manager to update the bootloader to the "Stable : 2021-01-16.bin", answering 'Yes' to 'Reset bootloader configuration to defaults?'.
