Linux -  ChromeBox Kodi E-Z Setup Script (LibreELEC/Linux+Kodi) [2017/02/21]

I'm having the same problem on my ASUS Chromebox CN60 (haswell). When switching from Kodi to Chrome OS the system
will start the self repairing process every time. This also happens after booting a usb drive.

Don't understand why, because there were no changes made to the ssds partition sizes.

Tried a full system recovery and reinstalled rw_legacy firmware but had no success.

Chrome OS itself runs fine and I don't want to get rid of it. :-)

Any suggestions?
Thanks

 what ChromeOS version, RW_LGEACY version, and USB are you trying to boot?  Are you running LE from USB as installed by the EZ Setup script?

Not sure if this is the right thread to post the question in or if it's a LibreELEC issue, but:

I'm trying to reinstall LibreELEC 8.2.5 on my Asus Chromebox (which is set for dual boot) from USB because my system partition is too small to upgrade to LE8.90 and yada yada.

Anyway, when SeaBIOS screen comes up and I hit ESC, I get the option to pick to boot from USB (and the USB device is recognized).

When I press 2 and wait for installer to start, it simply reboots and goes back to the Developer screen then SeaBIOS boot menu again.  If I don't do anything, of course it boots into Kodi.

I'm obviously doing something wrong... Any ideas what the issue might be?

UPDATE: Figured out that since its dual boot the usb installer wasn’t working with an out of date bios, so I just redid the EZ script and reinstalled 8.2.5.

But it didn’t apparently change the system partition, so the LE GUI still couldn’t install 8.90.x for the same reason (says it needs at lease 512M).

So I reran the EZ script and it couldn’t install 8.90 either, says not enough space.

I’ve got 8G allocated to LE. Is that not enough anymore? Must I convert over to Standalone so as to get all 16 gigs?

I just reset my CN60 to factory default, installed LE (tested both 8.2.5 and 8.90.006), and have no issues booting into either following install via the script. That said, I did encounter the issue below...

It seems Google broke something related to Legacy Boot Mode in a recent update. I'm able to boot from USB without triggering a repair, but booting LE from internal storage triggers a repair every subsequent boot into ChromeOS. Use ALT+Shift+I to submit a bug report -- the more people we have reporting, the more traction it should get

Mine’s actually an M004U if that makes any difference.

So I might have overlooked something: So I need to wipe the thing back to out-of-the-box condition and install from scratch to get the partitions resized? I haven’t done that. In its current state, I could reinstall 8.2.5 fine, but 8.90 doesn’t install due to not enough space.

CN60 is the model #, M004U is the region-specific config (Celeron 2955U/2GB/16GB, North America, no keyboard/mouse).

Yes, you have to do a full reset via recovery mode in order for the script to redo the partition sizes. Or, boot a Linux Live USB and manually resize /dev/sda6 to 512MB by first shrinking /dev/sda7 by the required amount, using gparted.
