In this tutorial we will explain how to boot an Raspberry Pi from USB Disk.Anyway you need SD card to give the minimum boot instruction to start the OS from the Flash drive.
Using this concept we can boot it from the HardDisk,so that we can get more space
Steps for Booting Raspbian from USB Disk Step 1:
Minimun size of the USB Disk should be
GB(I am using 4GB Pendrive).Format your USB Disk with FAT
format.Port an Raspbian OS to the USB Disk as per the same step 1.
Open your SD card and the edit the file
Open the file and change the path from
mmcblk0p2 is the default path of the SD card and sda2 is the path of your flash drive.
Now everthing is done and pop both your SD card and USB Disk to your Raspberry Pi.It starts booting.If you want to confirm whether it is booting from USB Disk ,just remove the SD card from the board after two minutes. It will still remains the same,you can access your Raspbian.
