pre loading an SD CARD
« on: May 12, 2023, 02:45:26 AM »
hi all, i am wondering if there is a way to preload a fresh SD card with all the required software for Pi? i have pi imager app, which i can pre-load the OS, but i’d like to be able to pre load the RBFEEDER and Mlat systems so i can simply remove the current SD and install the new one so i can reduce the OFFLINE status as much as possible… thanks for any and all Help!

Phil.

Hello.

Wouldn't it be easier to clone the card as a whole?
Take a look at this https://youtu.be/xSxNJSkSgpk video which demonstrates how to do it by RPI itself

no, the current SD card i messed it up while trying to load some software, cant fix as there are components that were removed and i have nothing but errors… the only thing that is working is rbfeeder thankfully… but i lost the Mlat client. so cloning will not work
