NOOBS does not disply

Sun Sep 15, 2019 7:10 pm

I am using an RPi3 with Waveshare 7C display, HDMI. It has worked well for a long time. I have the config.txt. The microSD card has failed and I must build a new one. While I have a .img of the 32GB SD, I cannot burn it to another 32 GB card as the image size is a bit too much for the 32 GB cards I have on hand. So I thought to build a new system wil NOOBS. The NOOBS copy does not work this display with either HDMI option (press 1 or 2 on the keyboard.) How can I patch the NOOBS to use my working config.sys or some other solution?

A couple of suggestions:
1. Use pishrink to shrink (a copy of) your old image so it fits on your new sd card.
2. Loop mount your image on another Linux machine (could even be your RPi with Raspbian and a different HDMI monitor) and extract your old noobs files from it.
