Error during boot up


#1

Purchased a brand new gopigo kit with the dexteros memory card. Get a flashing green led that never stops. Hooked it up to the tv, and it has the following error:

kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(179,2)

I reinstalled dexter os on the factory installed memory card. Booted right up!

Disappointed it was not functional right out of the box as advertised.

Hi @peter1,

We’re sorry to hear you had trouble on the first run with DexterOS. That to me looks like a corrupted SD card or one that hasn’t been flashed properly.

We’ll take your feedback into consideration and we’ll try to avoid having this kind of issues in the future.

Thank you!

Same here. Got a brand new GoPiGo with memory card. On first boot, I get kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block … I guess nobody does any QA prior to shipping. Bought it for my daughter and now have to reinstall the OS.
