Apologies in advance if I am posting in an incorrect area, new to the forum.
I have recently purchased a Pi 3 and began running Raspbian, purely as it came with the device. I would prefer to run Ubuntu Mate as I'm finding Raspbian to be a little bit limited for what I want to do.
I have downloaded the latest Ubuntu Mate and extracted the file. It is just below 5GB. To my knowledge (albeit limited when it comes to Linux), I have to use FAT32, as Linux OS' do not recognize NTFS. Due to the restrictions on file sizes I cannot write the Mate image to my SD card as it is over the limit for a single file using FAT32.
Is there a simple work around for this? I am using windows to write to the SD card, and I'm not computer savvy enough to find a way to compress the file (if possible on a disk image).
