boot Raspberry Pi 3 from a USB mass storage is very slow

Wed Aug 24, 2016 5:26 pm

I used this tutorial to let the Pi boots from usb stick
i used
1- transcend 16gb 3.0 usb
2- sandisk 64gb 3.0 usb
https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... des/msd.md

PI takes a lot of time for responding

How are you measuring it? There's always a delay before the rainbow screen while the hardware decides there's no bootable SDCard and switches to searching the four USB ports for a bootable device.

Have you stumbled on the limited RAM bug? My RPi3B is back on an SDCard because it was only getting 128MB of RAM activated when I boot it from the current BRANCH=next bootcode.bin.

Everything I did caused the system to start swapping and dying through lack of RAM.

If you want speed then use a USB HDD.
