Hello, i need your assistance guys.
I have problem with installation osmc on two sd cd cards, 64 GB and 16 GB.
First time i thought it is problem with size of 64 GB so i bought 16 GB card but i still can not finish installation.
In both cases i got installation error “install failed: can’t mount root”
I have tried many solutions osmc forum and others but it didnt work. (even installation form debian and fedora)
Blockquote After it fails, can you mount both partitions on debian/fedora?
im not sure what you asking about
after a failed installation i was able to mount sd card on debian/fedora. There were about 255MB fat 32 primary partition and rest of size was raw partition (no file system).
I did not try other OSs, let me check it and i will let you know soon.
yes, and this is very weird because it occurs at both sd cards. (16 GB and 64 GB)
i didnt mention that year ago i installed osmc on 8 GB sd card (the same pi) but this card died and i have to install os one more time
Did you try it on another linux box? Maybe something went wrong with the RPi which is causing the issue now.
I just checked installation with a 16G Sandisk card. The only difference to your log is the number of blocks the formatter is trying to squeeze in. I doubt that’s the issue, though.

i tried two installtions.
raspbian and libreelec
and both with the same error message cant mount root on device.
So im almost sure that is a sd card fault, but this card looks OK for normal usage. I mean read and write filesystem.
Everythink is OK except installation pi os.
I bought two sd cards and both are broken ? What are requirements for sd cards especially? According to specification i have Class 10 SD card and no smaller than an 8GB card.
