OK time to get this Raspbery Pi 400 to boot from a Corsair Voyager GTX memory stick!

`hdparm -t` on the current Samsung PRO U1 microSD card:

Timing buffered disk reads: 116 MB in 3.01 seconds = 38.48 MB/sec

I'm using the Raspberry Pi Imager v1.7.2 to write the "USB Boot" utility to a spare microSD card. This changes the boot priority to prefer USB. tomshardware.com/how-to/boot-r

Now I'm cloning the microSD that was booting this Pi onto the USB drive. I'm using balenaEtcher, which has a built-in clone workflow.

@annika Etcher is so nice. I wish they hadn't gone the adware route. I'd gladly pay them for their product!
