Oh - I was under the impression its out of Beta status as when you switch the config to 'stable' its installable.

Note that likely you need to update the EEPROM itself as well before you can do the USB boot, e.g. via dietpi-config > Advanced Options. I also though it was already possible with current version, probably I mixed it up while investigating the new 5.4 kernel in pipeline. Can't check, GitHub is down :(.

After updating your EEPROM you might want to test the new 64-bit alpha image: https://dietpi.com/downloads/images/tes ... -Buster.7z
Some RPi specials might not yet work, beta state as well from RPi Foundation side, but many mid- and long-term benefits over 32-bit Raspbian-based image I expect :).
