You can do it from Windows without installing anything else. Run "Computer Management" and then select "Disk Management". Delete the unwanted partitions from there.
Even better. Thanks! I just thought because it was a linux drive, it would be more complicated.

Re: Wiping RPI 3 B+ SSD boot drive

Install gparted. That will let you format the drive ready for use on Windows. Thanks, that seems to be the solution I was looking for, but due to being a noob/ignorance and not knowing exactly what to search for on google couldn't find. I'll install gparted on my windows laptop, plug in my pi SSD a...

Wiping RPI 3 B+ SSD boot drive

I currently have and boot from a Samsung 860 Evo SSD 250GB on my RPi 3 B+, it's worked out wonderfully. However, I'd like to now utilize this drive instead for my future PC build, where on my Evo 970 I'll be booting windows. I'd like to wipe the 860 clean and install ubuntu. I have found the correct...

Boot Raspbian. Mount the Retropie partition and edit things from Raspbian.

You can see the mounted partitions with a sudo mount command. You can see the mountable partitions with sudo fdisk -l.
Sounds like that is the key, thank you!

Re: Config

Obviously what I change on one SD card does not effect another SD card.. jeez. For example, like I stated earlier I have raspbian lite and retropie on ONE SD. If I changed the /boot/config.txt on raspbian lite, would it also change it for retropie.. that was what I was curious about. I'm using PINN...

Config

I boot multiple OSs on my microSDs, if I change the config file (such as overclocking specs) while on Raspbian will it also change it for OSMC, Retropie, etc.?

I installed RetroPie on one of the cards, as well as Raspbian lite. I did so to make it easier to overclock and use the terminal more freely.

Thanks for the replies. That dlink is priced reasonably, I think I'll give it a try!

Powered usb hub

Any suggestions on a powered USB hub? I don't need it to power my Pi3b+, and would only need 2-4 ports. All I want to do is be able to use my Seagate backup plus slim HD. I have a dedicated power supply for my Pi. It's a little unclear with a simple search, as most others are looking to power their ...

Re: Setting up pi for the first time without keyboard

Ah, thanks. I'll give that a go to sate my appetite for the time being. Then I'll just reformat my SD card and start anew with berryboot when I have my keyboard. Make sure you know about the limitations of berryboot before you start. The main one being that all the OS installed share the kernel. I ...

Setting up pi for the first time without keyboard

I just bought a pi 3 b+, and am anxious to get it going and start tinkering. I have everything I need, except the keyboard (2 more agonising days of waiting for delivery). Is there a way to circumvent this temporary obstacle with either my windows laptop or Android phone? I plan on installing berryb...
