We have just added Network boot support for the RPi3B+ to our about to be released TLXOS 4.6.0
This can potentially save a lot of money as no storage is required on the Network booted RPi’s
We are hoping that the Rock Pi 4 has been designed with this option also?
The user just installs TLXOS on a RPI, then uses the Management Software or local configuration menu to enable PXE boot Server mode on that RPi, this takes about a minute to configure.
I have been testing this Diskless booted mode on the RPi3B+ while watching the load on the PXE Server RPi which is basically zero CPU most of the time.
I love the Diskless boot performance on the RPi3B+, it will be outstanding on the Rock Pi 4
