Boot from USB attached SSD HD

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Is it possible to boot nanoPI NEO H3 v1.3.1 from USB attached SSD HDD instead SD card? I think about solution similar to Raspberry Pi 3. Any idea?
I would also like to know this. Our current client will not allow us to use the usd card slot.
But we can add a USB drive.
It is possible. The newest version of npi-config has option "Boot device". I did not try to boot from already attached SSD HDD but this option offers such opportunity.
In my solution, SD card is practically read-only. All changing files (including whole Domoticz) are located on SSD HDD. Boot partition i changed to read-only in fstab.
Additionally I place all temporary files in RAM-disk, including SQLite files from Domoticz, NTP drift files, PID files etc.
