Peer asked 4 months ago

Hi All,
When i i tried to use the latest Pi Imager to write the Updated OS (Raspbian 32bit & 64 Bit) using new Micro SD Card for the “Raspberry Pi Model B+”,
Its not able to boot up and Pi keep on Auto Restart.
When i check the Micro SD Card storage Size, (After Image Burn) 16 Gb Micro SD Card changed to “Boot” Named and 256Mb storage Size. remaining storage automatically converted to unpartitioned.
Does any encounter this issues and anyone can advise how to recover it.?
Regards,
Peer.

Hello Peer,
I encountered exactly the same problem with an old SD board. I’m on macOS, I first thought of bad formatting. So I tried to format it, without success. In my opinion your SD board is defective, but I hope I am wrong.
Did you try to format it before copying the Raspberry Pi OS files with Pi Imager?
