At the Raspberry Pi prompt type "Sudo Shutdown -F -r now" and that will reboot the Pi and run FSCK to check the volume.

how are you trying to install the image to the sd card?
it seems as if you either have a bad download or are not creating a proper image.

take care

In the video from one of your other threads (which should all be merged) the messages include:

Code: Select all

Greetings from standalone Raspberry Pi!

FAT-fs (mmcblk0p1): Volume was not properly unmounted. Some data may be corrupt. Please run fsck.
The fsck message is just a warning.

The boot stopped because it is complete. There will be a root prompt somewhere higher up the screen. Pressing Enter should give you another one. If you cannot type it is because of the keyboard problem, not because the boot has failed. (Try disconnecting the mouse, because it is not usable in safe mode anyway.)

The card has booted in safe mode, which normally only happens if GPIO3 is pulled low. In the video you have nothing connected to the GPIO. Have you connected anything in the past?

ok the best way (for me anyway) is to put the sd card in another computer.

~$ df -h
look for the sd card in my case it is /dev/sdb
~$ sudo umount /dev/sdb*
~$ sudo dosfsck -w -r -l -a -v -t /dev/sdb1

put the sd card back in the pi and reboot

I hope I understand compleatlly
hope that helps
