Booting from SSD raspberry pi 4

Hi guys, I was wondering seeing as RaspberryPi4 now supports a stable release of booting from an USB device, if I could set this up for my balenaOS device?


Hello Ethan, thank you for reaching out.

Currently USB booting for the RaspberryPi 4 is in the roadmap. We were waiting for the Raspberry Pi Foundation to implement it.

We will let you know once this is available.


Sweet and I believe they’ve released there stable version? That’s why I was curious when you guys would implement it!

Do you know of a workaround currently?

Hey Ethan, there is any simple workaround.

We opened a Github issue that you can follow here

We recommend to wait for the official support solution.
