There are a few setup scripts going around, but this is the one I am working with. It is a work in progress mind you.

You need to write the image to an SD card with disk imaging software such as Etcher or WinDiskImager. Be very very cautious that you are 100% certain you have the correct disk selected before you write any images.

One thing I like about Etcher is that it usually gets the disk correct. A few years ago, before I started using Etcher, I used dd from the command line to flash the image to the pi. In that program you really really really have to be careful. It is called dd (disk destroyer) for a reason. . . Etcher is safer in that regard.

I bought my Stellarmate OS image from stellarmate.comSt I tried installing it my self and spend way to long trying to figure it out. Said, what the heck...Bought it from SM and was up and running in a few minutes (I think like 30 minutes) and I had a fully working system. And you really can't beat this team developing it.

Oh the StellarMate OS image is at: www.stellarmate.com/products/stellarmate-os.html

Chris, it is not clear from your post how you are trying to access the microSD card.
It may be held by another process so you should unmount it first - sudo umount /directory path.
On Raspbian the program that is on the menu used to unmount it automatically but it has stopped doing this so you need to do it yourself.

i had several time that when i like to create the clean install the SD looks to be locked Unmount because of the installation already on the SD .I have no idea why this is

I load than the umbunto-mate via etcher, if the SD is new it has no problem but after than i am not able to burn save back the backup img file or a clean umbunto mate install with etcher, it looks like write protected.

Did you have that kind of issue also, how do you back up your images via windows.

please can you explean how you do backup and restore img from and to SD, on windows who do you create your backup

Chris,
You might give the official SD formatter a try.

Using StellarMate's hacked and slashed Raspberry 4 image, how could I use a really, really fast [400/read 400ms/write] USB 3.1 flash to improve performance? I wish I could just boot from it, but I am skittish/not sure it is possible on this image.

You can try this :

- Install your image both on the SD card and the USB MSD (Mass Storage Device) as usual.
- boot from the SD card.
- Go to the config.txt file (/boot/efi/config.txt, depending on you distro ?) and add this at the end of the file:
program_usb_boot_mode=1
- reboot fom the SD card and enter:
vcgencmd otp_dump | grep 17
The answer should be : 17:3020000a If that is not the case, it's hopeless.

If you get the good answer :
- remove the last line you added to the config.txt (program_usb_boot_mode=1)
- turn off th Pi and remove the SD card.
- Install the USB MSD and boot . That's all !
You are now booting from the MSD. (USB Flash, HDD etc...) in 5 to 10secs. :)

If that does not work, you may try other MSD, some are compatible, others are not.

You may also need to add one or more of these commands to the config.txt :
- program_usb_timeout=1 (gives a 5 secs delay to the boot instead of the 2secs original delay)
- max_usb_current=1 (1200ma for the USB instead of 600ma, for hungry devices)
If it still does not work, try to install a BLANK SD card to add a new 5secs delay.

If it still fails, then your MSD is incompatible.

This works with a Pi2 --> Pi3B+. Not sure with a Pi4 as I don't have one yet.

Thank you Marc. This is better than any answer I expected in such a short time.
