I’m doing custom stuff, so I’m not concerned about official support. :D By support, it wasn't meant you won't get help should things go wrong, it was meant that it will not work as the Pi itself does not support anything other over DSI than the official touchscreen wh...

Re: Any reason why a Pi 3 will not run from a 64 GB card?

Reasons why it may not work: 1. The SD card is fake 2. It is formatted as ExFAT, needs to be formatted as FAT32 3. Your Raspberry Pi may have an issue with reading SD cards 4. For best results use Etcher 5. Try a different operating system such as NOOBS 6. The Raspbian Download might be corrupted 5...
