    Hi there,

    By using dd I created a SSD from the SD Card for using with my Raspi 3B+.
    Everything is working fine, but the most space on SSD is unused 🙁
    So I came up with the idea to set up an additional partition as storage for MP3 files.
    Since I’ve done this, my Raspi doesn’t boot anymore. When it shows the 4 Raspberrys (as a symbol for the processor cores) ist hangs up, only the green LED flashes in a steady rhythm.
    I have no idea, what is the reason for this Behaviour.

    I tried diffrent things, but nothing is working…

    – First I’ve maked a 1:1 copy of the SD card to the SSD by using a Linux dd (plugged by using a SATA to USB adaptor) – this is working well.
    – Then I created a third partition (ext4) by using an ubuntu laptop – Raspi doesn’t boot anymore
    – Now I’ve maked a new copy from SD card to SSD and booted the Raspi. On console of my Pi I’ve maked a new partition by using cfdisk – reboot goes wrong.
    – At third, I’ve maked a new copy again and booted the Pi well. Then, I’ve increased the existing ext4 partition and tried to boot the Raspi – no way…
    At last I’ve tried to disable boot device check at boot time by editing cmdline.txt: fsck.repair=no

    Nothing helps me to boot from SSD and using the full space of it…

    Does anyone have an idea?

    OK, I think, I know the reason for this. By copying the SD card to the SSD device, the UUID will be inherited.
    If I change something on partition table, the UUID will be overwritten.
    I’ve adjusted this on cmdline.txt but this solves not my problem completely. Raspi starts booting, but I get lots of errors beginning by „failed to start remount of root and kernel file system“

    Hello Norbert,

    While do not recommend booting from USB and do not offer support for it, there is a previous discussion about the topic on here:

    Hello Norbert
    I made a copy from the SD to the SSD with a program called „Roadkil`s DiskImage Version 1.6“.
    For 32Gb SD the program ran 45minutes.
    Afterwards i copied the ISO with DiskImager to a blank SD (240 GB).
    Then I did a first boot with raspi 3B+. Everthing worked fine.
    Afterwards I did a shutdown (sudo shutdown -h now)
    I put the SSD on my Laptop via USB an formated the unused space with partionwizzard (free Version) to EXT4 with name „Daten“
    sudo mkdir/mnt/daten for the new space
    check also sudo nano /etc/fstab -> I used for the mounting the max2play html gui in tab „file System mount“

    my Settings:
    UUID=fdf7a0af-2c14-d601-f0b5-a0af2c14d601 /mnt/daten ext4 defaults,nofail,iocharset=utf8
    /dev/sda4 /mnt/daten ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1

    pi@max2play:~ $ sudo blkid
    /dev/sda1: LABEL=“boot“ UUID=“DF02-C322″ TYPE=“vfat“ PARTUUID=“ee397c53-01″
    /dev/sda2: UUID=“28590797-4810-4851-b4ec-bf9672c2918c“ TYPE=“ext4″ PARTUUID=“ee397c53-02″
    /dev/sda4: UUID=“fdf7a0af-2c14-d601-f0b5-a0af2c14d601″ TYPE=“ext4″ PARTUUID=“ee397c53-04″
    /dev/sda3: PARTUUID=“ee397c53-03″

    pi@max2play:~ $ lsblk
    sda 8:0 0 223,6G 0 disk
    ├─sda1 8:1 0 41,8M 0 part /media/usb0
    ├─sda2 8:2 0 29,1G 0 part /media/usb1
    ├─sda3 8:3 0 195,3M 0 part
    └─sda4 8:4 0 194,3G 0 part /mnt/daten

    best regards
