Can I use the USB-SD creator to setup an USB HDD to boot a RPi3?

  • Hi,


    I am planning to use the option on the RPi3 to boot directly from an external 2.5" USB HDD (no SD at all) and I am wondering if it is possible to prepare the HDD just using the LE USB-SD creator utility.


    What I am planning to do is:

    1. Activate the bit (program_usb_boot_mode=1) with a bootable SD
    2. Prepare the HDD with the USB-SD creator utility
    3. change config.txt to point to sda on boot


    I am right? Do I need to do anyhing else?


    Thanks!
