Unable to Boot RPI 3B from SSD disk

Tue Sep 04, 2018 9:30 am

Hi,
I'm trying (with no success) to let my raspberry pi 3 Model B boot from an external usb SSD device (a SanDisk SDSSDA-120G) connected to the RPI with a Sabrent (EC-SSHD) SSD/SATA to USB converter.

Device info:

Raspbian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie)
Linux raspi 4.14.37-v7+ #1111 SMP Thu Apr 26 13:56:59 BST 2018 armv7l GNU/Linu

pi@raspi:~ $ vcgencmd version
Apr 26 2018 23:13:35

I followed many tutorials, forums and videos, but this easy thing seems to not work for me. I've no other USB devices attached to the raspberry (except the SSD)

First thing I did was to flash the SSD disk with a brand new Raspbian Lite. The SSD disk is seen by the raspberry after I attach it:

pi@raspi:~ $ lsblk
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sde 8:64 0 111.8G 0 disk
├─sde2 8:66 0 1.7G 0 part
└─sde1 8:65 0 43.2M 0 part
mmcblk0 179:0 0 14.9G 0 disk
├─mmcblk0p2 179:2 0 1K 0 part
├─mmcblk0p7 179:7 0 13.7G 0 part /
├─mmcblk0p5 179:5 0 32M 0 part
├─mmcblk0p1 179:1 0 1.1G 0 part
└─mmcblk0p6 179:6 0 63M 0 part /boot

1) echo program_usb_boot_mode=1 | sudo tee -a /boot/config.txt

2) before reboot I had:
pi@raspi:~ $ vcgencmd otp_dump | grep 17:
17:1020000a

3) after reboot I had:
pi@raspi:~ $ vcgencmd otp_dump | grep 17:
17:3020000a

After the reboot I removed “program_usb_boot_mode=1“ from /boot/config.txt and than rebooted again, but the raspi didn't reboot from USB device attached

4) I removed the SD card and than I powered up the device, but nothing was happening, just the red led staying red and nothing else.

5) I tried to create an SD card (formatted as FAT32) with just bootcode.img (https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware ... otcode.bin) copied on it, but no success. I tried to both put this file in the root directory and in the /boot/ directory. When booting the raspberry with this sd card inside I was seeing the green led flashing 4 times. And in some cases the rainbow screen (and nothing else)
Anyway most of tutorials reported that SD card was not needed to boot from external device.

6) I tried to use my working SD card and add rootdelay=5 in the boot settings (/boot/cmdline.txt), but no luck here too.

7) I tried to add "program_usb_boot_timeout=1” in /boot/config.txt and then rebooted again the raspi with the sd card inside, but still no luck. After I shutted down the pi, removed the sd card and tried to boot again, but still no luck (just red led on, and green led off)

pi@raspi:~ $ vcgencmd otp_dump | grep 66
66:01009daa

(so bit 24 seems to be set properly)

I've no more guns, I start to think that there is a compatibility problem, can you help?

Thank you

Re: Unable to Boot RPI 3B from SSD disk

Tue Sep 04, 2018 9:55 am

I read https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/pi-3-b ... rage-boot/ (and didn't found my device in that list), so at the moment I don't know if the problem is the SSD disck from Sandisk, the adapter or something I can fix.

Any clue?

A question after reading this paragraph:
--------------------
My MSD doesn’t work. Is there something else I can do to get it working?

If you can’t boot from the MSD, then there are some steps that you can take to diagnose the problem. Please note, though, this is very much still a work in progress:

Format an SD card as FAT32
Copy the current next branch bootcode.bin from GitHub onto the SD card
Plug it into the Pi and try again
If this still doesn’t work, please open an issue in the firmware repository.
--------------------

Should the bootcode.bin file be copied either in / or in /boot/ ?

I've tried copying both in / and in /boot/ and the RPI after boot stops at the rainbow screen. The green led blinks 7 times (should means kernel.img not found)

That should be 'bootcode.bin'. So if you did indeed rename it to '.img' then you should try again

The file I copied has extension .bin (I made a mistake while typing). This morning I noticed sde, yesterday was sda (this probably happened due to changing usb port on RPI).

I've no clues, the device works, but seems unable to boot.

I really like to use an SSD and not a USB pen drive because I think SSD are faster and more reliable; Am I wrong?

am curious about the chipset used in your Sabrent SATA to USB adaptor

If you can boot the RPi and connect the Sabrent adaptor cable can you post the output of the command

Code: Select all

: ~ $ lsusb
to make the RPi boot using the bootcode.bin method
  1. prepare a microSD (even fakes will do just fine)
  2. format the microSD card into volume only, FAT32 format. you may name the volume as BOOT
  3. copy the bootcode.bin file to the microSD card. the source is https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... /README.md
  4. plug the microSD card with the bootcode.bin to the RPi you want to boot
  5. flash a the latest raspbian image to the SSD using Etcher
  6. plug the SSD (with its adaptor) to the RPi
  7. turn on the power and let it boot
as its a new installation let it finish.

This can happen when it is disconnecting / connecting a couple of times.
For some reason the 'old' device is not seen as unused when the device connects again
BTW: it could also mean that more devices were connected which were removed before the lsblk command, but that's not the case here.

It could actually point to a marginal power supply as the problem.

Do you have any other USB drives connected to the USB port during startup? Regardless of where the one and only USB drive you plugged, it will always be seen as /dev/sda
the second one will be /dev/sdb

now since you mentioned /sde, its the 5th USB drive attached to your RPi?

looking at the lsblk output it seems that you are using NOOBs installed raspbian in the microSD.

Booting from a RPi powered USB drive, (even a SSD), is not as good as hoped for, none of my drives, HDD or SSD, will boot from the power supplied through the RPi USB ports, via any of my 3 cables - I have to use external power on all of mine, (including the SSDs).

I have no problems what so ever booting from pendrives, however, they are a bit slow, but usable - so that's what I use if I want a quick set up.

hdd drives are not suitable for RPI usb powering ; ssd disks use little current, so can work. In my case it works, but not for boot.

I'm looking for a reliable long-term storage solution for an RPI doing a lot of data collection and DB operations. USB pen drive I think is not the best medium, but don't know if inside some pen drives at the end there is an SSD

Thanks for posting the output of lsusb

Well this is based on my experience on adaptor cables/HDD cases that I have in my possession.

the culprit is.... the SATA to USB adaptor cable.... as it uses JMicron Technology chipset. Its a hit or miss (well mostly misses).

For your USB boot SSD, I recommend changing your SATA to USB adaptor cable to ones using ASM1153 Chipset, like the Eluteng SATA to USB3.0 adaptor cable. There are other "brands", just confirm the chipset used by the adaptor.

For reference, I have one RPi3B setup that boots reliably from a 2.5" Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD, using an ASM1153 chipset equipped SATA to USB3.0 adaptor. No problems so far.

The JMicron Technology chipset equipped adaptor cables are used for the non-boot HDDs connected to the RPi (1B, 2B, 3B, 3B+)

Hello,
if you think the problem is the cable I'll try this one https://www.amazon.it/ELUTENG-Adattator ... 06XCV1W97/ that seems to have ASM1153 chipset :)

I'll order in the coming days and let you know

Tnx! :)

This is used with my RPi3B+, Quattro Case Black, 2.5" Marshall 1TB HDD (USB Boot drive).

Its available at the same site you posted.

Tue Sep 04, 2018 2:24 pm

yes, but here we are talking about mA; voltage drop is not (should not be) too much.

do you think in any case that chipset with the E can work too?

Now I've another doubt... :/ On this raspberry I've already connected 2 usb to rs485 adapters (now is CP2104 SN75176 - another one has the chipset CH341 (those adapters were disconnected during tests). From datasheet I was unable to find how much current they drains.
OT: Is there a way on the RPI to check/read current usage on the ports?

I know that for RPI3 the total current shared between the 4 usb ports is 1.2A - on the Sandisk I read 0.7A, so with adapter perhaps they become 0.8/0.9A. I'm worried I drain too much current. Can you suggest a SSD adapter with external power supply? this way I don't drain extra currents from the RPI and it works better.
I've found https://www.amazon.it/CSL-Adattatore-Co ... B01CJJ9GIQ but it has another chipset (ASM1053 instead of ASM1153)

The Ugreen 20611 has chipset VL711F0 - does it work?

Another one has chipset JSM 578.

how about this one?
https://www.amazon.it/dp/B00N4JLNXM/ref ... abd883f66d

it uses the same ASM1153E chipset, as the UA1003 that I have that worked properly.

I cannot comment on the Ugreen 20611 chipset VL711F0 because I have not tested that
The JSM 578 is a JMicron Chipset, so it may not work.

The RS485 adaptors probably dont draw that much power, I cannot verify that for I dont use those.
Better test it yourself and post the results here for us to see.

I wasn't able to find the chipset it uses, but looking on amazon.com I see it uses ASMedia ASM1153E - I'll give it a try and share results

The problem with many JMicron adapters is that they have old firmware. But I've had very good luck with that exact Sabrent model.

FYI: I have an external enclosure with the ASM1153 chipset that failed to boot a Samsung SSD, while the ELUTENG worked. So it's not the chipset specifically. It's a combination of chipset, firmware, and the SSD all working together (or not).

I have yet to find an SSD that doesn't work with the ELUTENG USB3-SATA III adapter cable, but obviously I don't have the ability to test every combination (I have tried models from four different makers, Samsung, Crucial, Silicon Power and MyDigitalSSD).

I've even written Raspbian to a 500GB hard drive and successfully booted from that. And it wasn't one of the new slim power efficient models either, it was an old 9.5mm WD HDD pulled from an 8 year old Sony VAIO laptop (Pi3B with the official RPF PSU and 2018-06-27 Raspbian Lite).

So far that ELUTENG adapter has not failed me (I even bought a second one when the price dropped briefly to $6.99).
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?

I may have to agree with what HawaiianPi mentioned. I just booted my USB HDD native boot RPi3B, to check the chipset used by the old USB2.0 3.5" HDD 12v self powered case. Checking via lsusb -v the chipset used by the HDD case is a JMicron JM20329 chipset. The HDD is an old 3.5" Hitachi Deskstar 250GB HDD, rummaged from an old VHS-HDD player combo unit.

Anyway what we recommend is what worked for us. And yes, its good to get information not just from one person, but from others who have tried as well.

There was this saying that I found....

...... but it has another chipset (ASM1053 instead of ASM1153)
ASM1053 chipset works on my USB HDD boot drive.

Hello,
if you think the problem is the cable I'll try this one https://www.amazon.it/ELUTENG-Adattator ... 06XCV1W97/ that seems to have ASM1153 chipset :) ...
This appears to be the same model I have had the best success with. I've booted from SSD and HDD with that cable.

mmm I've seen it has a too short cable ...
Too short for what? It's plenty long for my Pi computers.
