Booting from USB

MicroSD cards are notouriously slow and prone to be corrupted. SD card corruption means that a high read/write load or a sudden power outage can make render your card unusable. It is therefore strongly recommended that you use a USB drive for your root partition. To be able to do that, you have to follow these preliminary steps:

  1. Download and install the Raspberry Pi Imager.

  2. Insert a microSD card to your computer.
  3. Open the Raspberry Pi Imager

    3.1 Select CHOOSE OS >> Misc utility images >> Bootloader >> USB Boot

    3.2 From CHOOSE STORAGE select your microSD card

    3.3 Click on WRITE

  4. After the writing was succesful, you should eject the card.
  5. Insert the newly created card into your Raspberry Pi and boot up the device. If it is connected to a monitor, you will see a green screen. Let your device rest for a minute, after which you can disconnect it from power and eject the card from the Raspberry Pi. It can now boot from USB.
  6. Final step: write your FreedomBox image into your USB device, then connect it to your Raspberry Pi. Make sure you did not leave your microSD card in the Raspberry Pi.

Please note that steps 1. to 5. only need to be done once.
