bl870 and USB

Hi and Happy New Year everyone!!

My question: Have a single bl870C blade in a development role here, along with an rx7640. Is there ANY way to hook up a USB hard drive for ignite purposes? I have a 1TB usb drive I would like to use this for.

Any ideas?

Re: bl870 and USB

As far as I know, Ignite support or USB hard disks is currently very limited. You can boot from an USB disk, but the Ignite environment cannot yet use it as an installation/recovery source.

This whitepaper is all I know that can be done with USB disks and Ignite:
