Going to make another image just of the rootfs, so we may be able to easily just copy / burn this to a device (harddrive, pendrive) etc
Just tested - all working
I wrote the normal Bananian image straight to a USB drive using Win32 Disc Imager.
This was a bit slow writing for some reason (about 4MB/s)
Anyway, changed the boot device to /dev/sda2 on the small image I created and it booted up fine.
Obviously it's sda2 as sda1 on the USB drive will be the boot partion (that's not used).
I was thinking of creating an image with only the root partion, but this seems not required as just burning the normal image works fine.
Not really a big deal that there's 25MB wasted on that partion that isn't used.
Worst case, I could delete it with gparted and then change it to sda1.
I wonder if we could get the SD card boot partion just to point to the USB boot partion...
This way, only the USB stick needs to be updated, and the small SD card would never need to be touched.
