What am I missing? Noob boots, I select the recommended rasbian install. It goes through a several minute process, but then brings me back to the setup/install screen? Only things I can select in menu is help or install....

If you only want to use Raspbian then using NOOBS is only waste of space. Most of us flash Raspbian direct from an image. Download one of the images from Raspbian Downloads. This will also avoid the problems you have with NOOBS.

    @PaulLowe If the answer help you it would be nice if you could accept it with a click on the tick on its left side. This would finish the question and does not pop up later again. It shows that it has a solution.
