I had an older pi (B+ model) running Raspbian Jesse and ran into a corruption issue, and finally picked it back up to replace the SD Card and I have been having issues installing Raspbian Stretch with Desktop. Originally I wrote the img file to the SD Card using Etcher and later installed it via Noobs, but each time it got hung up on different error messages. Mainly:
---[end Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs unknown-block(179,7) random: crng init done
After trying this 4-5 times I transitioned to Raspbian Stretch Lite, and this installed successfully with no problem. After this was successful I tried with Desktop again, but it got hung up on the same error message again. Can anybody help explain:
---[end Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs unknown- block(179,7) random: crng init done
What is this error message and is there any way I can correct it?
NOTE: I am using the pi with a connected monitor & keyboard. I cannot ssh into the pi because the ip address isn't being assigned. I am using an 8GB Micro SD Card.
