I just took a sd card to apply the beta bootloader on my pi.
Booting from an ssd or usb device with rasperrian (replacing elf and dat files) works fine.
But I'm not able to get an ubuntu up and running. Any hints?
I believe that this method avoids the SD lifetime issues due to writing to the SD. Files are read from the SD /boot directory on startup, and then all system activity is passed on to the SSD.When I only want to have the ssd because of limited lifetime of sd card, is that method good? Only booting from sd card or is the boot partition used more than just in a boot?
