Hi, I’m new to this and I’ve run into an error.
Using Pi 3 model b
Elecrow 5" lcd hdmi touch screen
After plugging in power cable it says
“waiting for root filesystem device /deb/mmcblk0p2”
then after a minute it says
" FATAL ERROR: Could not find root filesystem device /deb/mmcblk0p2 - if this is a USB install please check the USB drive is connected.
OSMC initramf’s rescue console.

Are you using a USB install? You need to explain a bit better what you’ve done to get to this point?
So sorry, I’m using a 16gb micro SD card. No USB install. I used the OSMC windows desktop application to create the image that’s on the SD card.
Do you have a different sdcard you can test with?
No, I don’t. But if absolutely necessary I could order another one from Amazon, I guess. It’d take a couple of days, though.
Samsung, SanDisk or OSMC brand are best
I have a 16gb sandisk ultra
Have tried a fresh install on the SD card and booting it without the touch screen but with just normal TV connected?
You can also test your SD-card with your Windows PC, perhaps this speeds up some things. Steps I suggest
Reformat your SD-card using actual “SD Memory Card Formatter”, link Downloads URL - SD Association
Use the test program “H2testw” to check your SD card for any problems; the program also has an English interface, see link http://www.heise.de/download/h2testw.html
No, I haven’t. I’ll let you know the results.
Ok. I’ll get edit when I’ve done these things. Thanks everyone for the input.
Update: I tried connecting to my TV and same result. I reformated then used the SD testing software and my SD had no issues.
