Got a question from a user and though it would be helpful to answer it here,
I am able to boot just fine off an sdcard with a converted rpi3 image but not off an SSD. The SSD boots fine with a stock RPI3 image so its not a power issue or SSD issue. Any idea what could be different
between booting off a converted sdcard and SSD? I used the same mender recommended dd command to flash both…
What I suspect is happening here is that the storage medium naming changes between SD and SSD.
mender-convert is configured to boot from SD, and hence this configuration is applied,
Could you try updating this to,
You can double-check what the name of the storage medium when booting from SDD using a stock Raspbian image.
This naming is needed for Mender to be able to switch between partitions and right now does not support “dynamic” booting.
