Hello,
i have so many problems to get a bootable file named mhminix-v4.9q-v3.img on the sd card. Using the imagewriter i get the message that always 7,560 GB on my card. When i check it, than are only 20,4 MB on it.The complete card memory is shown like 29,4 MB. What the matter? It is a 8 GB microcard!! I have do this for three times. Always the same result. Other imagewriter provide always invalid results. I do this on windows platform win 7/64. Who can help me?

greets

your windows desktop cannot handle the multiple linux partitions that are brought onto the SD card when installing the image. So you just see the first tiny partition when accessing it with a windows pc. So everything is right.

Imagewrite does have hickups some time. When you have a linux PC/Mac around bringing image via dd low level write to SD card is a no brainer. Windows tries to keep you from low level disk writes away at any cost. If someone knows a more reliabe low level disk writer for windows, any suggestions are welcome.

I was in contact with the guy,

The image was written correctly, but it seems his MiniX does not boot at all from the SD-Slot.
Is there any boot settings in the BIOs to change the boot order or does it boot from SD as first device in any case?
