PIMP OS Won't fit on 32 gb USB



  • Now it has a system volum information folder in it like my usb did.

  • can you try win32diskimager now that you have a drive letter?



  • Still a no go



  • I can't imagine it's the connection. I already reformatted the HDD.



  • geesh, sorry to hear that. I've never had so much trouble imaging (btw, I don't work for pimp).

    If you aren't on a laptop, maybe you can plug the hdd into an available sata connector on the pc and try that way. Aside from that, I'm out of ideas without actually looking at the machine in front of me.



  • I've plugged my HDD into a sata cable directly into my motherboard. I'm still getting errors.



  • DMDE will help in solving this problem. https://dmde.com/download.html


  • Staff

    use SAMSUNG MMBRE16G5MSP-0VAD1 16 GB 3.0 GB/S 2.5" SATA SSD I had gotten a ton of them around $17-22 before March. Now that mining is booming, these disks cannot be found as easily.

    Just got a kingdian 16GB SSD too. Works great.

    Otherwise I pick up the Sandisk 120GB SSD's at Best Buy for about $42.

    We can try to shrink the images down in the future. We have not heard any reports of data not fitting on any 16GB disk. Therefore we believe If you follow the instructions using HDDRaw it should work.



  • DMDE solved my problem.

    Thanks
