Well Jonas, on a standard Raspberry the way to enable USB boot is described here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentatio...des/msd.md

But as you know on netPI you have no chance to made any modifications in the config.txt file located on the host Linux partition.

The Raspberry (the same as with netPI) bootloader performs the following boot flow: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentatio...ootflow.md and checks the OTP bit 28 as mentioned here https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentatio...otpbits.md. If set it boots from USB disk drive if any found.

I tested this feature on a netPI evaluation hardware myself and I can tell you that netPI supports this boot mode and boots from USB stick indeed. But you need to get this bit set and I don't know of any trick to set it other than modify the config.txt.

Thx
