Use Etcher to unpack / write the "Raspbian Jessie with Desktop OS".IMG to the SD Card, works for meMrBorg wrote: ↑Tue Aug 15, 2017 8:09 amI have now wasted a lot of time trying (2 whole days) to download noobs and jessie images from the download page. I have tried with 2 different micro SD cards (8GB and 64Gb class 10 cards). I'm trying to boot up from my Raspberry PI 3 model B. But get the error saying "Could not expand filesystem, please try raspi-config or rc_gui. Boot and root partitions are on different devices".
I'm having all my troubles with image "2017-07-05-raspbian-jessie" - is this images even working? Are all my sd-cards corrupted? Is it only me who is wasting terrible lot of time installing news images for my Raspberry PI projects?
The problem is probably due to the unusual image sizes.oscarv wrote: ↑Fri Aug 25, 2017 12:52 amI had exactly the same problem. Using 4 different SD cards that worked well before, and on two different Pi's.
In my case, the problem turned out to be that I used win32diskimager.
Using Etcher, the problem was gone.
Very strange, since I've been using win32diskimager for years...
Although you may have your own valid reasons for want to run a superceded release of the Operating System, have you tried - for the purposes of troubleshooting - downloading and installing the current 2017-09-07-raspbian-stretch image?
