Re: Hard drive

Yes, you can use the SD card just to get the machine started. I do this and use a Solid State Drive (SSD) for a couple of my Pis - especially for servers that are 'always on', the SD card eventually gets fried with too many writes to the same locations for log files and such.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
There's a set of instructions here:
You basically copy the SD filesystem to the hard drive, then alter the /boot/cmdline.txt file on the SD card to point to the hard drive.
Not trivial, but not really difficult either. You're welcome to contact me if you have problems doing it.
