Install TinkerOS to HDD

"Asus Tinker Board Run Tinker OS From USB Or External Hard Drive"

That installation still requires and boots from an SD card, with the OS running from the HDD. I believe what the OP is wants/is doing is booting fully from a portable drive without the need of an SD card, like the RPi3 and raspbian.

How did you do this? writing the image directly to a USB and just plug and play? have you tried the rootwait option?

Linux Noob but learning fast.
I have a small blog with some Raspberry Pi and Tinker Board tutorials I've picked up.

Does anyone know how to setup the extlinux.conf to boot from USB with the updated official image?


Code:
label kernel-4.4
   kernel /zImage
   fdt /rk3288-miniarm.dtb
   append  earlyprintk quiet splash plymouth.ignore-serial-consoles console=tty1 rw init=/sbin/init

Again I know little about linux, would it realy be as easy as:


Code:
root=/dev/partID
somewhere on the 4th line?

This works for me
