In this video, I’ll walk you through setting up your Raspberry Pi 4 to boot from any USB connected SSD or alternate drive step by step. We’ll start by flashing the SD card, then copy the card to the drive, move on to setting up the Pi and finish off by removing the SD card and allowing the Pi to boot from the SSD.
