I might be getting (hopefully) a Rpi 4 within shortly. I wondered if there is a “bare minimum” recommendation on the rw speed of the SD cards. I imagine the faster the better applies here but is there any bottom limit?
so far my best xp on Pi4 + Pinebook Pro if use sd card is SanDisk Extreme Pro. Have 5 @ 128GB . never let me down
I sure @Pudge be prob give best answer on this
I have a SanDisk extreme? Gold and red. It doesn’t matter anyway though, you should be able to USB boot.
I haven’t touched my pi in a while. I really should get on that.
Thanks for the replies guys!
Great, thanks! I’ll have a look at them.
Do you mean from an external drive, like a SSD?
as @fbodymechanic say … you can boot from ext ssd or nvme
Also from USB drive itself?
Then something like that is pretty reliable
That sounds great!
So I could just install the OS on the SSD using my laptop and then Plug&Play on Rpi?
Those look good! Fast also.
Thanks for the tips!
for Pi it all here
"https://arm.endeavouros.com/installation/ " + purge do great thread on here
Edit … it very simple + work great .
I have the whole set of them - 2 32gb (W10, and future W11 install .iso), a 64GB for timeshift on my one laptop - a 256GB for music on the go, and a 128GB for my pi.
Thanks a lot! I’ll have time to go through those threads during this weekend.
This will be my first experience with Rpi so I am a bit excited about it
64 bit work on boot for ext ssd but no great … 32 bit work flawless . that what i use ssd and 64bit i boot from sd
Good to know!
I have a couple of SSDs around that haven’t been used for anything for some time. I’ll be glad to be able to use them with Rpi now.
Will I be needing some heatsink case of som sort, like the one in the picture for example?
