Re: SD-card and HDD relations

Something is missing in your description. That error happens when you put /boot on the SD card. With bootcode.bin-only it should work. Which "full-image" are you using, and what was on the SD card? I had a 2018-11-13-raspbian-stretch-lite on the powered hdd burned with etcher Yesterday version of h...

Re: Boot from HDD and boot wait times

Thanks all for the input.
Not being able to read wait times from the HDD as it has not spun up seems to be a issue hard to get around (as was said no bios on the board..).

If I go on the SSD road, does this SSD also need to be powered externally?

Dear all, I just got the B+ version to boot from USB HDD. However when I need to re-boot it fails and I need to "pull the plug" on the Rpi and try again.

Hello,
I re-installed a raw image instead of the "noobs" network install.
Port forwarding worked directly - on any port.
I am still very interested in what was wrong when I used the "noobs network" install alternative.
