I’ve been testing the beta version of osmc on a raspberry pi 4 (OSMC_TGT_rbp4_20210414).
Ignoring already known bugs, it runs great as usual.
I am trying to move existing installation (or install a new one) on the usb-ssd drive connected to the raspberry and boot from there but with no success. The case is an argon one m.2 and raspberry has been configured to boot from usb. the disk gets detected as sda.
I tried the osmc installer but the OS got installed on the SD card instead of the usb drive and i also tried copying the partitions of the installed SD to the USB drive while editing cmdline and fstab (to force mount / partition even if osmc doesnt mount / via fstab)
Anybody managed to do it, or know if i 'm missing something?
Excuse me it this is the wrong place to post my question since the version is still a beta
If I understand right, the testing image linked in the post here (OSMC_TGT_rbp4_20210414.tar.gz) is not yet the image with the fix, is that correct? I just tried installing it and got the same behaviour as the original post. I see there is a changelog in that post but am not sure if the image includes those changes.
Should the fix be included in the August '21 release? I still get “Install failed: could not mount bootfs” when trying to install the new image on my RPi4. I put the image on my USB attached m.2 SSD using the Raspberry Pi Imager, as the m.2 ssd did not show up in the listing with the OSMC Windows installer.
Then created space for the SD’s boot partition BEFORE the root partition on the SSD and cloned the boot partition from the SD to the SSD. Removed the reference to mmcblk0p1 in /etc/fstab and the SSD booted nicely as my PI 4 has boot order 0xf41.
Dumb question, but could you please provide steps for this part: “Then created space for the SD’s boot partition BEFORE the root partition on the SSD and cloned the boot partition from the SD to the SSD”?
