Working in this field and having been bitten many times over the years, our general rule of thumb is to write as little as possible to the boot device. I have no idea why booting from an SD card or a USB drive would make any difference - the corruption is a file system issue. It typically occurs when you are writing to the file system structures

A boot operation is typically read only. I have products in factories that have to run for years, so we have come up with approaches to minimize writes to anything important. For example, diagnostics are collected using a USB drive. Working storage is ram, the results are copied to the USB, the boot device is not touched. Logging is another issue. What we've found is that if writing only occurs on a user commanded basis, typically you don't lose power during that operation Smile | :) .
