NanoPi M4 USB install

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I would like to run my NanoPi M4 from an external USB3 SSD.

Does anybody know if the images here:

Will work? Or are they specifically for SD or eMMC?

 

If they won't work, how do I modify to make it work?

 

Many thanks!

Without eMMC/SD card as boot device its not possible. Not Armbian and not their builds.

Armbian works out of the box. Just do your homework: https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Getting-Started/

you could ask the threadstarter of the following thread:

 

he do boot from sdcard and then change the rootfs to a 

usb 3.0 device - but you cant boot directly from usb 3.0

Yep. nand-to-sata-install works pretty good.
