Problems with Raspbian Jessie first boot

July 19th, 2017 Categories: Ultimate Raspbian

I’ve faced some problems when running Raspbian Jessie for the first time from the USB flash drive in my new Raspberry Pi 3. The message was “Root account is locked” and there were problems when mounting the root partition. We’ll edit /etc/fstab with the new addresses for the boot and OS partitions.

  1. Listing the exact name of the boot partition (mmcblk0p1) with the following command:
    ls /dev/mmc*
  2. Creating a backup of the actual fstab with the following command:
    sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab2
  3. Editing the /etc/fstab file in order to change the partitions addresses with the following command:
    sudo nano /etc/fstab
    we’ll change the first PARTUUID=XXXXX for /dev/mmcblk0p1, and the other one for /dev/sda2
  4. We’ll type sudo reboot to reboot. We’ll then type sudo raspi-config in order to access the configuration.
