I am attempting to install CoreELEC on a WeTekPlay 2 and have followed the instructions as listed, but have run into an impasse just creating the installation media.
The person for whom I am attempting to install this has a PC with Windows 10, so that’s what I have attempted to use to create the installation media. They also offered a 64GB MicroSD (class 10, UHS3 ) for CoreELEC.
Downloading the image (9.2.1 for ARM generic) and Rufus went smoothly. Rufus detected the SD and the image and seemed to successfully write it. Unfortunately, after doing so Windows10 cannot even see the SD card or any of the volumes upon it any longer! Quickly downloading a 3rd party partitioning tool (DiskGenius is what they had available) , I could tell that there were 2 partitions written - a Hidden Fat16 “COREELEC” to 512MB and an EXT4 at 32MB. I can even browse the DTBs inside the COREELEC partition using DiskGenius and see the one that I should need for the WeTek Play 2, but as I cannot interact them, I can’t proceed.
It seems that Windows10 cannot see nor interact with a hidden Fat16 partition at all, so I’m at something of an impasse, as I cannot select, rename, and copy the DTB as instructed. Ideas?
