Raspberry pi 3 B+ doesn't boot


Hi everone
I have a raspberry pi 3 B+ with (Intenso) micro SD HC Class 10 32GB card.I would like to try Ubuntu Mate on my raspberry pi system.I have downloaded https://ubuntu-mate.org/raspberry-pi/ubuntu-mate-16.04.2-desktop-armhf-raspberry-pi.img.xz file.Until now everthing goes well.But at the img writing I get some errors like underneath.I use the software for formating Gparted and img file writing Gnome-disk-utility 3.26.1.

error writing 1048576 bytes to offset 1004535808: Input/output error(g-io-error-quark, 0)

Im able to run Raspbian with out any trouble.Why doesn’t work with Ubuntu?

I also used fdisk and dd and ddrescue under commandline but raspberry pi couldn’t start or boot there were no green led its only flashing red led.I also added Screenshot underneath.
I also tried several times command line codes but it doesn’t boot either.

[CODE]sudo fdisk /dev/sdc
$ sudo fdisk /dev/sdc

Welcome to fdisk (util-linux 2.30.1).
Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them.
Be careful before using the write command.

The drivers haven’t been included yet. I was able to customize the images with this thread on the raspberrypi.org forums.

I made torrents of the images I made (or you could make your own with the information in the thread):


Oh thanks a lot. I’m going to try it very soon.


Oh my God. It works like a charm.Good Job!!!


I’d be happy to host a mirror if someone would care to get me a copy without having to torrent it :stuck_out_tongue:
