When I tried to use NOOBS my application said "It looks like this is not a bootable image. This image does not appear to contain a partition table, and might not be recognized or bootable by your device"
So this your idea of "New Out of the Box"????
If you really were a NOOB, yes, unfortunately you learned that software on a PI should be installed with Etcher, which meant you no longer are a NOOB.
With NOOBS you simply copy paste
the content of the .ZIP to a 32GB (or smaller) SD-card.
Its a matter of knowing more than was good for you at that stage, you no longer belonged to the true intended group of NOOBS (fully ignorant NewBies). Also, Etcher was developed long after NOOBS, and its predecessors were dangerous in use, that is why NOOBS was developed, and its user instructions ignore the existence of Etcher.
