  1. Make an SD card, maybe with the lite image, boot it and do the initial dialog.
  2. Make an ext4 filesystem on the SSD, and copy the root file system with cp -ax / /mnt.
    • That cp command is broken, so I used cp -ax /. /mnt
  3. Use lsblk -o +PARTUUID
  4. Edit /boot/firmware/cmdline to change root
  5. Edit /mnt/etc/fstab to change root partition
  6. Reboot
  7. Install raspberrypi-ui-mods
