Hello, I received my Vero 2 yesterday. This morning I started installing it and after configuration I run the update from MY OSMC. After he installation the system rebooted and now I have the following :
FATAL ERROR: Could not find root file system device /dev/Vero-nand/root - if this is a USB install please check the USB drive is connected.
OSMC initranfs Rescue Console.
Solved reinstalling from SD. The first trial failed then I changed the SD and I reached the goal. Which type of SD are usable for Vero2? Because apparently both the SD I tested have the same caracteristics but only different capacity.
A new update was available (why if I used the 2016.09-1 release?) and again I had the Fatal Error. Now I’m not able to restart from SD. How is it possible? What can I do? How can I force the boot from SD card?
Run sudo apt-get update, and then sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. Make a note of which packages it offers to upgrade and put them here.
After this, run sync && sudo reboot
You will need to install OSMC to your SD card again. We delete the partition table of the installer off the SD after successful installation so that you don’t get in a boot loop of constantly installing OSMC, and so that users cannot accidentally plug the SD card in their device later and erase their internal storage. I would prepare the card again before trying the toothpick method.
Thanks – I’m not sure why you had an issue after updating but I’m glad it’s resolved now.
Looking in to the reason you had to update, even with the latest image, it looks like there was a problem preparing the 2016.09-1 filesystem for the Vero 2 (APT mirror temporarily went down); so the installer picked an older one. I’ll rebuild the filesystem and installer now, thanks for reporting, and I’ll add a check so this can’t happen again.
P.S. in future, you can mark a topic as solved by clicking the Checkmark on the post that helped you
It is expected that you would also see an update in My OSMC if apt-get dist-upgrade shows packages are to be updated too. Provided the update has gone through without issue, you’ve nothing to worry about :). A new updated 2016.09-1 image will be published shortly.
I received my Vero 2 today and have had exactly the same issue, so it does seem to be a repeatable issue today.
I’ve used the OSMC installer to generate an reinstallation SD card but the Vero 2 doesn’t recognise the card, which is a Kingston 32 GB device. I’ll try a different SD card tomorrow but I’m wondering whether the Vero 2 requires a particular type or capacity of SD card.
Also, for info, the on-screen error message when the device fails to boot refers to http://osmc.tv/help but that specific URL doesn’t exist - it redirects to the home page. It may be helpful to put some recovery instructions on that page.
Don’t use Kingston SD cards – they’re not very reliable or highly recommended, mainly due to low 4K IO performance and problems with some SD controllers.

I’m not aware of any significant issue affecting OSMC or re installation on Vero 2, but I’ll obviously keep an eye out. Let us know how you get on. When you say ‘exactly the same issue’, elaborating would be helpful, just so we can confirm if you have a similar problem
