Bootable Ubuntu Core on USB flash drive

Hi, I’m a newbie to Ubuntu Core and Snapcraft. I’m trying to find a way to load Ubuntu Core on a USB flash drive, in order to make it bootable on whatever machine I choose to plug the USB flash drive in.

Is it possible to do that? If the answer is yes, how can I do that?

Thank you in advance

Technically this should only depend on your EEPROM settings, but that said, i doubt anyone ever tested this (perhaps @waveform did when developing the core 22 gadget?)

I’d just simply try it… dd an image to a usb stick, set the pi’s EEPROM to usb booting and try to boot it without SD but with USB plugged in…

What kind of device do you want to boot it on? Something like an Intel NUC or more like a Raspberry Pi?

Heh, maciek has a point here … i blindly assumed RPi …

None of them unfortunately… I would like to boot it on industrial PCs (advantech mic-770 for instance). Is it possible?

Well, thats pretty close to a NUC … just make sure to have the UEFI set to USB booting, then it should just work …
