I'm new to Raspberry Pi and I just flashed the SD card and installed Raspbian on it. After reboot, I used raspi -config to expand file system. However, I get the error

Your partition layout is not currently supported by this tool. You are probably using NOOBS.

I am not using NOOBS since I just installed Raspbian. Then why am I getting this error?

Additional details-

uname -a shows:

Linux raspberrypi 3.6.11+ #474 PREEMPT Thu Jun 13 17:14:42 BST 2013 armv61 GNU/Linux

df -h shows:

  • It may be more helpful if you post the full output of df -h. – joan Jul 9 '14 at 20:58

    did you reboot after resizing? It only resizes when it reboots. How big is your SD card? – Steve Robillard Jul 9 '14 at 21:20
  • @joan I updated df-h. I was unable to resize, as I've mentioned in the question. Size of Card is 8 GB. (Even if you conclude it already is resized, the question is why does it not let me do the process again. Why does it feel I'm probably running NOOBS?) – sbhatla Jul 10 '14 at 14:27
  • Given that / (root) is shown as 6GB the partition has been resized. It won't let you do it again as there is nothing else to do. – joan Jul 10 '14 at 17:02
  • Are you using raspi -config or raspi-config. I hope it is a formatting mistake. – Fahad Siddiqui Dec 2 '15 at 6:43
