It's been a few years ago here that I configured a Seagate Dockstar to boot using a USB stick. Worked fine for a while. Used one of two USB sticks for a nightly backup.

It did only last about 6 months. Then I went to using first generation USB to SSD sticks. They were much larger and more expensive than a regular USB stick. For said project went to a USB to a 16GB SSD card and an 8 GB USB stick. It's run like this now for over 5 years with no issues. The original USB SSD sticks were around $30 each at the time. (Kingspec). An internally mounted USB-SSD stick would probably work except that you cannot find these anymore.

Fast forward to the RPI...here going to the Arm based Rock64 (RPi sized) which will utilize a 16Gb eMMC for booting rather than the microSD card. Currently running here with the Pine64 2Gb computer and it's been doing fine for over a year booting from a microSD card.
