Recently I purchased an ssd and a hard drive enclosure to use for my new Raspberry Pi 4. I was hoping to utilize the increased speed, storage, and reliability of an ssd with my pi.
I followed these instructions to get my pi to use the root installation on my ssd: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=259680
Unfortunately, when I power on both my ssd and Raspberry Pi I get kicked to an emergency shell with the error that "special device /dev/sda2 has not been found." Why is my pi not detecting the root partition on my ssd?
Here's a list of the hardware I bought:
- Sabrent USB 3.0 to SATA External Hard Drive Lay-Flat Docking Station for 2.5 or 3.5in HDD, SSD [Support UASP] (EC-DFLT)
- Samsung SSD 860 EVO 250GB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E250B/AM)
