Not enough disk space when updating


#21

(also notice my family wondering what I’m doing.)

Just to clarify the above.
Now when I turn on the slice it takes me straight to the Noobs screen. From there I cannot exit so when I try an install it fails with the same screen as above, then tries to boot and hangs with a black screen with a red square at the top corner.

Hi Gordon

Any ideas? I’m unable to use my slice now.

Thanks

Sorry,

Fixed this problem for someone else, but thought you’d see it there…

I believe the problem is the FAT32 partition is slightly too large and the recovery system will not re-size it unless it is the only partition on the filesystem.

To fix this, log back into the recovery terminal then type:

noobs_update
mount -o remount,rw /mnt
sed -i -e s/6291456/4718592/ /mnt/recovery.cmdline
mount -o remount,ro /mnt

This should then restart and allow you to install correctly

Thank you Gordon!!!
Although I have faith, I must admit was a bit worried there.

Thanks again.
