  1. Here's how to do the diskpart part.... open up command prompt and type in DISKPART then type in list disk and select whichever disc you want it's likely number 3 or 4 or whatever is at the bottom I don't know how many hard drives you have it'll show the volume that's all you'll have to go by... then you need to type "select disk 3" for example Then type clean and it should fully format the drive it will then be formatted to a raw drive which has no partitions on it... you can do this in Linux but just did not work for me and I don't know why... Then you need to go into a program called... I don't know what it's called... but all you have to do in the search thing is type "part" and it will come up as create and change partitions or something like that... Then you need to right click and follow the steps and format it to exfat Then what I did was completely wipe the pineapple and start the installation on an Android phone but while wiping it leave the SD card inside it... this just work for me I don't know why it could be just freak accident or it could legit be the key I really don't know if it works let me know that's what I did This is copied from another post I wrote before I tried 2 more nanos.
  2. This is seeming to be a common issue and I've now fixed three times on different pineapples... You need to format the drive to RAW... I did this using DISKPART in cmd because its faster than a terminal.... Then simply insert it into the pineapple and do not remove it for the following steps... Firstly factory reset the pineapple... Then preform the first time setup (on an android phone preferably) Next format the card... The card showed up at this point on 2 of 3 nanos for me.. On the third I just powered it off and plugged it into my PC... Then connected to the AP and went to the web GUI and it showed up.... I hope this works for you... Good luck
  3. Sorry i forgot to post this here so... Ok well basically since I could not get any good of it in a Linux machine I decided to go out in Windows so I open up command prompt and type in DISKPART then type in list disk and select whichever disc you want it's likely number 3 or 4 or whatever is at the bottom I don't know how many hard drives you have it'll show the volume that's all you'll have to go by... then you need to type "select disk 3" for example Then type clean and it should fully format the drive it will then be formatted to a raw drive which has no partitions on it... you can do this in Linux but just did not work for me and I don't know why... Then you need to go into a program called...

Then you need to right click and follow the steps and format it to exfat Then what I did was completely wipe the pineapple and start the installation on an Android phone but while wiping it leave the SD card inside it... this just work for me I don't know why it could be just freak accident or it could legit be the key I really don't know if it works let me know that's what I did
  4. @divxpr I'm sorry about the time difference here... I'm at work rn but in like 2-3 hours I'll post here exactly what I did... it could just be a coincidence that it worked but yes first thing I tried was formatting it in a terminal.
  5. we all know microsoft is obviously the most popular with the public... i heard of this cool now thing called ms-dos, im installing it now. its supposed to be powerful and innovative!

  7. What about blackarch... its GUI looks pretty cool tbh... i got a CD of it at some con thing but only booted it live, wouldnt use it day to day!
  8. @madvideos i got mine working and it was pretty simple in the end. ill try to help you but no guarantee i can. firstly (this is relevant) what did you use for initial setup (windows box/linux box/android)? also what sd card do you have... and lastly does the disk show up under fdisk -l
  9. @Cporter and @madvideos did you buy your pineapples post 2.5.x update?
  10. sure... ill try help. when can u chat as i dont like to send and receive messages like every 2 hours. thats just annoying to me
  11. Damn... I saw the previous post and thought it was the answer.... scrolled down.... 😞 any chance youd be up for heading over to a discord server to try figure this out as a team effort in like 2 - 3 hours?
  12. Hi all, im just after buying a nano and setting it up on android as i thought that looked easier. however when i wanted to try it out and get modules i put an sd in it... and nothing happened, no lights flashing, no gui changes... nothing. so i hopped on my windows pc to try see if the card worked and it was fine. i put a .txt file with like one sentence in it on the card and then put that in the nano...nothing again, even after formatting the card in the pineapple the .txt file was there. then i cleaned the sd with diskpart on windows and reformatted it. i then tried again with 4 more d cards of different brands, ages and capacities. still nothing. i then ssh'ed into the pineapple and found that the card did show up there under /dev/sda1, however it gave me a warning saying it needed to be 1024 cylinders and it was 3775. i really dont know what to do and i spent more on shipping than the pineapple itself so i dont really want to have to pay to return it. if anyone has any ideas however small or silly they may sound please post them. also if anyone else who has a pineapple could tell me exaxtly what card worked for them i might try buy one. also sorry for bad typing i dont have time to spell check. :)
