oh, ok...  the reason for the comment was to make sure that everyone viewing ( noobs and everyone ) that what allows most notebooks to boot from the usb port ( most modern x86 systems ) is either eufi, or bios.  Since the Pinebook is missing both of those ( not to mention its also embedded arm ) booting from usb in the classical sense of the word is simply not possible.


   


Martinayotte makes a good point !   ... but keep in mind, I'm not talking about what could be done in the future of possibilities;  I'm simply trying to answer the question, "is it possible to boot the Pinebook from usb,"  and this assuming the classical sense of the conversation when someone typically asks if they can boot a notebook from usb !

You've heard me mention in the past that I'm a card carrying member of the FSF;  well, in the pic above you can see the cards I'm talking about laying on my Pinebook keyboard!   I am FSF hacker #9604;  and when you're a hacker with the FSF your membership card is an official usb boot stick !   ... in this case, my cards ( you get to see both sides ) contain Trisquel Linux a completely free blobless OS gnu+linux system. 

And now to emphasize the point...  in the classical sense of the OPs question ( and many have this question ) if I put my membership card ( FSF ) into any one of my notebooks I can bootup Trisquel Linux ...  well, except for my Pinebook;  because these cards will NEVER bootup in the Pinebook -- not now nor in the future ever !
