I want to know if after configuring a Pi Zero as a USB gadget and USB mass storage and enabling USB boot on a desktop or laptop, would the other machine boot to the Pi's USB mass storage data? For example, if I just used a normal USB stick and put an OS on it using Rufus or some other bootable USB stick software; would the Pi work the same way?
