SD card not being resized and first run startup failed

Post by menacing_jon »

I've recently got a new pack of 32gb sd cards, and put the diet pi image on one of them, and when i try to setup dietpi, the resizing fails and when i try to finish the install process, for example, when i get to the dietpi-software screen and choose the software i want, and click install, i get the first run setup failed error, and ive tried hard drives and many different storage solutions, and i couldnt get dietpi to work for a couple days.(im using a pi 4)

Hi,

pls can you share following 3 files

Code: Select all

dietpi-firstboot.log
dietpi-firstrun-setup.log
fs_partition_resize.log
they are located at /var/tmp/dietpi/logs
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

copy the files to /boot directory. Remove the SD card and plug it into a (Win) computer. There you can access the files on the boot partition
