Openhabianpi on RPi3+, installed on SD card, working fine. I’ve tried multiple times to move the Boot to both a USB thumb drive and/or a USB SSD using Configuration Tool - never boots afterward. Have to reset /boot/cmdline.txt on the SD card to get back into it.
Since it’s part of the official Configuration Tool, must work for others, but I just can’t wee what I’m doing wrong. Any secrets I should be aware of?
@Thedannymullen You do not need the SD card if your USB device has been properly set up as a bootable drive, and you have a newer RPi that has the usb boot capability. My RPi3 is booting happily from a USB SSD with no SD.
I used “dd” on a different computer to copy the SD to the SSD. I’ve also successfully used Etcher to write the openhabian image directly to an SSD and boot from that. No SD used at all for that install.
Still no joy getting it to boot from USB. Verified OTP 0x3020000a. Trying it on a thumb drive (have 'em on hand) will put it of SSD if I can get the darned thing to work.
Flashed copy of working SD card: no-go
Flashed new openhabianpi image : no-go
No SSH into it, found out couldn’t even ping it. Do have ethernet port amber LED.
Flash openhabian image to ssd or usb drive using etcher
Install into pi
If these steps are followed and it does not work, i can only suggest watching the pi boot with and hdmi cable plugged in. See if the splash screens are telling you something.
I know when i boot to ssd with one of my adapters it does not work. This is because the drive powers too slow so the pi misses it. A monitor helped me solve this.
Also make sure your power supply can put out enough power once the usb is attached.
