I am trying to start PI Model 2 B from an SD Card.
I downloaded OSMC_TGT_rbp2_20160502.img.gz and extracted is to get the .img file.
First I used the command dd bs=512 if=OSMC_TGT_rbp2_20160502.img of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 command. The PI would not start up. GPARTED showed the file system was not recognizable.
I used gparted to delete the partition and format it to FAT32. There was a 1 Mib ‘unallocated’ space at the beginning. I moved the partition to the left.
Then I used dd bs=4M if=OSMC_TGT_rbp2_20160502.img of=/dev/mmcblk0p1. But when I start gparted the filesystem is not recognized. Also the card is not shown in the file manager as it was before the dd command.
What is wrong with what I am doing?
(I used the dd command in another ‘mediaplayer project’ and it worked well.
