Re: STICKY: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

It looks like AIY Projects is not compatible with USB. I'm not sure why because Raspbian is. So for the time being I shall have to disable USB install for this OS. So, I've installed and tested all the OS on my USB. Got an issue with rtandroid as well. Got the following error message when trying to...

Edit: it's "emergency mode" with instructions that say: ty...

is there a way of getting into recovery other than holding shift?
I think I found it... "forcetrigger" ??? if I leave this parameter, would it always log into recovery mode?

Re: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

Thanks for your advise and support. Thanks for that info too, had a quick read but I'll read in detail later. Last night I did something else (before your post). When it was booting to raspbian, got this in dmesg: [ 3.360798] usb 1-1.4: new full-speed USB device number 6 using dwc_otg [ 3.470788] us...

Re: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

ok.. new attempt tonight. Decided to try and decouple the mSATA card (from the piDesktop) and connect them with a normal USB cable, also powering both from separate power sources... managed to boot into raspbian once, did the Rasp configuration and reboot. Now it won't boot into raspbian. I think er...

Re: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

Have you tried using Raspbian on an SD card and plugging you mSata drive in to check it is recognised in there as a plain data drive? Not exactly, but I've installed raspbian on that drive directly and it run normally, no issues, no need for an SD card. I even managed to get TinkerOS (for the asus ...

Re: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

If you have a Pi3, you can install PINN to a USB Mass Storage Device and install any supported OS to the USB drive such that it will boot from the USB drive without an SD card. (You need to configure the Pi3 to support USB booting). Hi, Can't make this work. I've formatted the USB to FAT32 using SD...

Re: How to boot ANY pi distro from usb?

Hi Procount, thanks for your response. Great explanation of how it works. As you seem quite new to this, I would suggest using NOOBS (or my improved PINN version) to install your OSes. The latest version (>v2.4) will 1) install OSes to the SD card (all RPi devices) 2) allow the boot partition to be ...

How to boot ANY pi distro from usb?

Is this possible? I'm asking about booting fully from a usb and not having an SD card at all. I know the latest raspbian image can be written directly to a usb, and the raspberry pi 3 will know and boot from the usb device. A bit of my investigation showed me that the changes I could identify where ...

Re: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick/Drive [updated

If you look at the very first post, there is a note about booting directly from a disk for the RPi Model 3. I already boot from a USB using raspbian. After enabling booting from a usb on the pi (steps on the rpi site), just burn the image with etcher to the usb, plug the usb to the pi, and boot. It...

Re: HOWTO: Move the filesystem to a USB stick/Drive [updated

Hi there, noticed you update for :"Multiple Drives" using UUIDs instead of /dev/sd* But I believe in your instructions you are still booting from an SD card. If I want to boot from a USB with a RPi3, how would the process change? I know the rpi foundation changed the image burning process to make it...
