Trouble creating boot SD

Jump to solution

I have been trying the whole day to create a bootable SD card with this guide https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-galileo-linux-step1# comm Make a bootable micro SD card (Linux). But after the process (sudo dd if=iot-devkit-201510010757-mmcblkp0-galileo.direct of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 conv=fsync bs=3M) when I check the SD card all I get is an error saying "This location could not be displayed", and the card has 4 files with unreadable files with weird names http://i.imgur.com/yU4MeZs.jpg pic.

I have tried:

  • redownloading the file,
  • using NTFS instead of FAT,
  • clean format,
  • follow the guide for mac on a mac
  • not setting any bs,
  • larger bs.

Anyone got an idea what could be wrong?

Solved:

I have been writing to the wrong device all this time, apparently /dev/mmcblk0p0 is a loopback device and I'm supposed to write to /dev/mmcblk0.
