Re: [Request] Recommendations on hardware setup (and restore options)

No problem. I believe a majority of my issues with a USB only system were from power supply being too low. After bumping up my powers supply things seem more stable.

Re: [Request] Recommendations on hardware setup (and restore options)

@Joulinar Thanks. that is also my thread where I was having issues with services failing to start. I've did migrate my RootFS and Userdata to an external USB SSD and thought I was all set, but then it crashed again and became unavailable and I had to restore a backup (again). Something on the system...

Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

I restored the USB SSD using the image for the SD card and it booted up just fine again. Any input on ways to expand the file system without it failing to boot after, or thoughts on why it's failing would be much appreciated. I'll see if I can find info on the interwebz too, or explore the Drive-Man...

Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

Got it. Thanks for clarifying. Update on my progress: After successfully setting the USB boot option in the OTP memory, I once again flashed my full SD card backup (which contained rootfs/userdata/boot) onto my USB SSD. After removing the SD card and plugging in only the USB SSD, this time it succes...

Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

Quoting myself here: I somewhat foolisly didn't run vcgencmd otp_dump | grep 17: after setting the USB boot option in config.txt, because I did check the config.txt file and saw the option was appended properly before rebooting. However now when I run the vcgencmd command it doesn't give me the outp...

Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

I found some answers in the Raspberry forums here - https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=175630 Looks like booting from SD is still a possibility, so I'll plan to move forward with setting the OTP memory to allow USB booting on my Pi 3b. I wouldn't have a problem updating UUIDs in the ...

Re: Services Failing after Swapping Backup Drives

Thanks. I had read through that article on USB booting, but what I still don't understand is if I set the one time programmable memory to enable booting from USB, can I still boot from SD if I wanted to (not saying that I would). I'm a little spooked by the OTP aspect since I have no experience with...
