System:
DietPi v148 | Pine A64+ 1GB Board (e.g. in my case a fresh installation)
Micro SD-Card: - SanDisk microSDHC Ultra 4GB
USB Device: - SanDisk Cruzer Fit 8GB USB-Stick 2.0
Hint: - Don't use this crappy SD-Card or USB Flash drive - I do this only for my tests ! !
...

Thanks for the info guys. I'll give it a try. I've had to step away from this project right now, but I'll be sure to give this a look when I have more free time.

Thanks again

Technically it is the same as my tutorial for Odroid device you can found here.

But, as @maxtox wrote, you have to edit uEnv.txt.

Hi k-plan,

I got your tutorial to work thank you so much. I think the problem I had before was I missed setting the USB to MBR!

Thanks again!. It was super easy to follow...as long as you follow ALL of the instructions :roll:
