I am trying to build a system on a Raspberry Pi 3B that boots from a USB hard drive using the 04-28-2018 image. I am wondering whether the instructions contained in Ward's post http://nerdvittles.com/?p=21255 under "Running PBX from an External USB Device" need to be updated?
I am able to successfully mount the USB drive. However, when I try to edit /mnt/etc/fstab, /dev/mmcblk0p2 does not exist anywhere in the file.
Similarly, when I try to edit /boot/cmdline.txt, /dev/mmcblk0p2 does not exist anywhere in the file either.
Is it possible to boot this version of Raspian Jessie using USB Boot Mode in the Raspberry Pi 3 described in this post https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/bootmodes/msd.md?
Thanks for your help.
USB only boot (no sd card) works on 3B+. I can confirm (but wasn't using your image).Appear to be system-wide issues booting from a USB drive on the Raspberry Pi 3B+. Stay tuned...
Possibly, I didn't have a 2.5 spindle around to test, only USB Flash and SSD.
