I only want to be able to boot from a USB drive, just as I do with Ubuntu, a 1TB plugged into a USB 3.0 hub.
I burned a 128GB USB stick -- plugged into the Pi4B, at the graphical boot screen all is OK, I hit enter but it never gets further than the "-" cursor in the top left of the LCD even after many hours.
Ok, so you use a LCD as display, you didn't mention that. Can you check if the system comes up on the serial console/HDMI. Please double-check if you forgot to add any overlay on your USB stick installation.
The system does not come up fully on the HDMI with USB boot, just sits there displaying the dash in the top left of a blank screen.
Another indication that the boot process stalls somewhere is that it's not seen with "nmap -sT 192.168.10.0/24".
This is what I see remotely when it's network is up.
Nmap scan report for Pi4-3.site (192.168.10.227) Host is up (0.00067s latency). Not shown: 999 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 22/tcp open ssh MAC Address: DC:A6:32:8D:3E:DD (Raspberry Pi Trading)
The reason for trying to boot with both was just something I thought worth a try just to see.
No problems when booting from a microSD card. Regards Sid.

Next I also installed openSUSE-Tumbleweed-ARM-KDE-raspberrypi.aarch64-2021.08.06-Snapshot20210818.raw.xz
to a USB HD.
I'm not quite sure why you are doing this. Do you want to boot from USB or from the uSD card? Why do you plug-in both?
I read the Wiki and ran "rpi-eeprom-update -a -d"
When I reboot it stops at the grub prompt when booted with the microSD in.
(proc) (hd0) (hd0,msdos3) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos1) (hd1,msdos3) (hd1,msdos2) (hd1,msdos1)
Booting with onlu the USB HD, in a loop looking for the hard drive.
Can you stop U-Boot before booting and type then:
setenv xtrace 1 boot
And provide the information.
No problem when booting with just a Ubuntu USB hard drive with no microSD card in. Ubuntu setup is quite straightforward.
Anyone succeeded with Tumbleweed?
