Re: How to run Debian from SD card but booting from USB stick?

The OP wonders if


it will work for Debian. The answer is "probably" but it is questionable
whether the advice to alter the initrd on the SD card need be followed.
Perhaps it was necessary for the Ubuntu kernel at the time the article
was written.

Not the kernel, but the default initramfs.
I seem to remember reading a recent post reporting that a SD/MMC driver was missing in the default Debian initramfs.

Debian would need to be installed to the SD card and the *same" Debian
installed to the USB stick.

Debian does not need to be installed on the USB stick. Only /boot and the boot loader.

lsinitramfs will help confirm whether needed modules are in an initrd.
