Fresh Install on microSDXC exFat

  • Used the SD Installer that does all the steps in order. It refuses to setup on my Rasperry Pi 2 with the typical colored screen. Tried an old Win32 Disk Image file and that worked fine, but I need a fresh install to make usage of the new space.


    Is it because of the exFat file system?? I used the SD Formatter twice, ejected when done, and ejected after the SD Installer was completed. :(


    Thanks for any help.

  • I did of an 8GB backup.


    Was not able to allocate the new space for the new card I was using. So it was making more sense to start fresh and restore from a backup within LibreELEC configuration.

  • I figured it out myself.


    You can't use exFat on Rasperry Pi or Kodi. Ended up making it a FAT32 file system in order for it to work. Had to also use NOOBS because the LibreELEC installer refused to work standalone even after ejecting it multiple times after each format conversion I did between each file system.
