This is what I did , worked perfectly
Write your image to the usb 3.0 stick ( I used Mark Rich but Tuxens works great as well )
Format a SDcard with minimum 128MB ( or any larger size or speed )as fat label it SYSTEM.
Plug the USB stick and the SDcard into the computer.
Now copy all the 10 files from the USB stick and onto the SDcard:
bootcode.bin, cmdline.txt, config.txt,
fixup.dat, kernel.img, LICENCE.broadcom,
openelec.ico, README.md, start.elf, SYSTEM
After that pull the USB stick out from the computer to avoid editing the wrong files just set it a side.
On the sdcard open the file cmdline.txt in notepad and change the following line:
boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 disk=/dev/mmcblk0p2 ssh quiet
boot=/dev/mmcblk0 disk=/dev/sda2 ssh quiet
but do this instead
boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 instead of mmcblk0 in cmdline.txt since two partitions where created on the sdcard by the image
then hit dev update grab the latest nightly for all the updates
Thanks to Tuxen for this
No because all you need is a empty USB stick formatted as ext4: the first 5 steps in the first post does this.Hi , im running windows 8 and really struggle with all the editing Is there a USB image somewhere I can download ?
No because all you need is a empty USB stick formatted as ext4: the first 5 steps in the first post does this.
Then when you point cmdline.txt to the empty device afterwards openELEC takes care of the rest.
i did all ute said, and changed what you said here "Change in your cmdline.txt: boot=/dev/mmcblk0 to boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 that should work."@defaultbr: No only change in your cmdline.txt: boot=/dev/mmcblk0 to boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1
If you written the image to the USB stick then disk=/dev/sda2
You need to explain what you have done. I have no idea what you mean by formatting the stick with the mini tool.
Edit: if you mean you have used win32imager to write the image to the USB stick and also your SD card.
Then boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 and disk=/dev/sda2
Otherwise follow the 10 steps 1 by one in the first post of THIS thread it works 100% and will give you a clean install.
You should try following the 10 steps in the first post of THIS thread it's really not hard I promise it just read hard but before you know it you are done.im usually good with all this but i wont be trying this. i feel like im gonna mess something up.
i wish there was a easier way to do it like there is with raspmbc
the setup i did for my parents was easy, but the ones i have at my place are all openelec builds and i love them. i just wish i could setup openelec how i did with raspbmc which was an easy process, but oh well. i'll stick to runnin openelec from my sd cards
maybe i'll try it this weekendYou should try following the 10 steps in the first post of THIS thread it's really not hard I promise it just read hard but before you know it you are done.
Ask anyone who tried it you really do not have to have much knowledge just take it easy one step by one and if you are stuck on a step ask. After you have done it once you can do it in 30mins max.
Problem is actually the image writing method reads much easier so they choose that but it is really what leads to all this confusion with multiple identical fixed sized partitions.
