Boot sector? There is no boot sector for the Pi. There is the MBR/partition table, the /boot partition and the / partition. That is it.
So what I'm trying to say is I guess I need a new SD card, but I'm not sure how to shop for one for a RPi. I've never had to buy one, because the ones I've bought came w/one.Pass completed, 7707648 bad blocks found. (0/0/7707648 errors)
Buster Lite is perfect for an NFS server. There's no reason an NFS server would need a desktop.
Oh, maybe I should point out that the shared files won't be on the SD card. I have an external magnetic drive for that. In fact, considering that the SD card I have didn't last forever, I'm going to be trying to get all the rw parts of the file system on to the HDD.Gavinmc42 wrote: ↑Mon Sep 02, 2019 11:48 pmSD card can be got from anywhere these days.

I usually use 16GB Sandisk A1 or bigger, currently using 128GB on a Pi4
The A1 is the important bit, that means designed for lots of little read/writes.
If you only use it for a server, try PiCore and any old 256-512MB card
I find those in old phones/MP3 players, most are SLC, single layer cell flash, they last a bit longer.
