I am using SD card only for boot, and USB card for disk (storage).
I am experience strange things during hot restarts and starting suspecting the actual SD+USB combination.
Could I ask, how its recommended approach to install that setup?
In times, when .tar was used for installation, I just prepared SD+USB by partition tool, primary FAT32 (1GB) to the SD card, primary EXT4 (XGB) to the USB stick. Find out UUID’s, fill them into cmdline.txt@Rpi and it works.
Now, I install .gz by Rufus, start C2, go through annoying resize process, then
then just edit boot.ini (
disk=UUID=<UUID USB Flashdisc ext4 partition>) and plug USB. But Ive run into issues linked above (just when restarting, cold boot seems to be OK).
Did something changes nowadays, when only .gz images are created? Is there any additional checks? Maybe also C2 related issues, things to solve? Anyone running SD+USB combination to preserve SD card failures / improve speeds, when SD card is small cheap class 4 card?
I can extract fat partition from .gz image, thats not a problem, for skip resize proces on device. It just seems that there is something around that, what I missed and wasnt required before…
