There seems to be a bit of confusion regarding the “config reset”. To clarify:
There is NO NEED whatsoever to try to format the SDcard, repartition it, or anything else of the sort. Its a waste of time and unnecessarily shortens the life of the sdcard; additionally there’s a decent chance it will still not do what is needed.
Just burn the image on the sdcard, without any other prep work, and then when you first boot the DC with this sd card, do a “config reset” from the lcd menu. Thats it. Config reset is NOT optional.
With the lcd menu “config reset” and “factory reset” options available, there is NEVER any need to try to repartition and/or format the sdcards.
