Currently, due to the global chips shortage and the general unavailability of Raspberry Pi products, even newer versions, your Raspberry Pi will not be able to boot from the image available for download. As soon as we are able to acquire one of these newer versions, the base image will be updated to handle the newer Pi models / versions.
However, there may be another solution available to you you might want to try. The image you downloaded is, in fact, not the Shake-OS image itself, but a pre-image, if you will. this image automatically resizes the filesystem to the maximum size available on the SD card you copied it to. The error you are encountering relates to the files associated with this initial start-up functionality.
The Shake-OS image itself, however, may have no trouble at all running on this newer version of Pi (i say with crossed fingers…). To try this, you would burn the Shake-OS image itself to the SD card and, once it is up and running (assuming boot-up is successful), you would need to resize the filesystem yourself if your SD card is larger than 8Gb.
The compressed Shake-OS image can be found within the downloaded zip file, named
rshake-os.xz. The steps to burn this directly would be:
- copy the file
rshake-os.xz to a location outside the zip file
- decompress the file (
tar on linux,
winzip on windows)
- burn the decompressed file to the SD card using a tool such as
- if you need to resize your SD card from the command line. this guide, starting from step 7, may be of use to you; there are many any other web-pages and videos that address this question.
If you do decide to try this, I would appreciate to hear your results, or any other issues or observations you may have. The supply chain problem is proving to be longer-lasting than anyone would like.
