"bad geometry: block count 1152000 exceeds size of device" error

Post by sarah72 »

Good morning ,
I have an odroid xu4 card which I flashed with ubuntu image.
The problem is that when I started it it crashes with the following error: bad geometry: block count 1152000 exceeds size of device.
I understand that I have not flashed the correcte version ubuntu? how i can solve this, please, for example should i try a minimized version? (I used a matte version)
thank you in advance

16GB is fine but not sure if Kingston memory card does not have an issue with XU4. You can try to flash again with Etcher or use another "Sandisk" SD card.

Hello
I solved the problem by uploading another version of the image: ubuntu-16.04-mate-odroid-xu4-20170731.img
