FWIW, I had this same problem earlier. The problem is definitely due to the card not being written correctly. In my case, I am 98% sure that if I have done "sync" (a few times) before shutting down (when I was writing the image to the card), it would have been OK.theom wrote:That means it can't see the RISC OS partition on your SD card. Perhaps there was a problem writing it in some way? Maybe RISC OS doesn't like your SD card for some reason? How are you writing the card, and have you tried another?
I checked the hash on it after i downloaded, it checked out ok....but maybe theres an update by now that i can try?flyinghappy wrote:Did you try re-downloading the file and writing the image? Could have been a bad download.
It is unlikely that the problem is a bad download - since you will usually catch this when you try to unpack the file (certainly, "unzip" will generate an error message when you try to unpack it). In any case, I usually do a "test" operation (the specifics of which vary by which archiver/compressor is being used) on the downloaded file before doing anything else.BadWolf1959 wrote:I checked the hash on it after i downloaded, it checked out ok....but maybe theres an update by now that i can try?flyinghappy wrote:Did you try re-downloading the file and writing the image?

If you don't have a spare USB slot, you may be able to remove the keyboard, or mouse as necessary at the time, insert a memory stick and use the mouse to save anything and restore it later. Not ideal, but should work. You can find a formatting tool under Utilities.Caution.!HForm.since all work gets lost
On the SD card image, the space reserved for the first (RISC OS) partition in the partition tables (RISC OS knows nothing about partition tables) extends only so far as the next partition (otherwise it would confuse partitioning software). The second (FAT) partition contains the boot files.My assumption is under RISCOS the LOADER I see is in a new place and there is no reference to the original.
