2. USB solid-state drive boot
Raspberry Pi boards usually boot from SD card by default, which is slower than SSD.
If the user uses this case, the Raspberry Pi can be started by USB, which greatly improves the reading and writing speed of the Raspberry Pi.
It can also extend the M.2 interface through the USB interface and use an external SSD as the main storage drive to greatly speed up the speed.
This product does not contain SSD(solid state drives). The board is compatible with M.2 KeyB and M.2 KeyB+M SATA solid state drives, but not compatible with M.2 NVME solid state drives.
2.1 Insert SSD into expansion board, as shown below.
2.2 Insert the SD card written into the system into the card slot on the back of the Raspberry Pi.
After connecting the expansion board, insert it into the shell and insert the USB connector. As shown below
2.3 Input following command to update system.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get full-upgrade
After update is complete, you need to input following command to restart Raspberry Pi.
2.4 Input following command to install the latest bootloader.

Input following command to restart Raspberry Pi board.
2.5 Input following command
Choose [Advanced Options]
2.6 Choose [Bootloader Version].
