hi David, hi all guys,
I just tried to flash my original micro SD card (because there is no other way to come out from the manual restoring that stucks on my kobo clara HD).
I used for the flashing operation the software "BalenaEtcher" (https://www.balena.io/etcher/) because it was impossible to use "usb duplicator image writer" (program closing after start of job).
after that, I checked the results by using "mini tool partition wizard" (as Gergith wrote in his post (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=209122).
I see in the picture posted by him that there should be more partitions, as below:
(Unallocated) 10MB, rootfs(EXT4) 256 MB..., recoveryfs(EXT4) 256MB.., KOBOeReader (FAT32) 1.33 GB.., (Unallocated) [however big the rest of your sd card is. 5.9GB for the 8GB card in the pictures].)

I discovered that, in my case, on the just flashed Sd card there is only one partition (7,4GB not allocated).

I'm wondering if my sd card is corrupted or if the used software copied wrongly the image received from you, or if my 7zip did not uncompress correctly the zipped file received.
can you, or anyone else give, me any suggestion for going on?

P.S. I'm using my windows7 PC for doing all.

thanks in advance for your support.

That sounds like the image wasn't written to the card properly. An unpartitioned 8GB card would probably show as 7.4GB in most tools. Did you run the tool as an administrator?

It could mean the card is failing. You can try another card and see if that works.

Hi David, thanks for your attention, I really appreciate it
the failing card is the first suspect for me, too.
tomorrow morning I will buy a new one and I will retry.
one doubt: as soon as windows will detect the new card he will ask for formatting it.
should I follow the recommendation of Gergith to do not format the new card and to flash it with the image "as is"?
please, if you have still patience with me, let me know if suggestion.

thanks again.

It will make no difference if you let windows format the card; the image that you write to the card will overwrite everything on the card, including the existing formatting.

WOWOWWWW!!
it worked, finally!: I used a brand new, 16 gb, class A card.
flashed it with the Image received by David (thanks David, great support from you) by using USBImage: everything went OK this time.
reallocated with “MiniTool® Partition Wizard Home Edition" as instructed by Gergith (and thanks to you, also, good guy, for such a pefect tutorial.
Now My clara HD is rebirth and ready for many more hours of wonderful reading.

thank you to all of the magnificent people found here.
if it will happen that you come to Italy, near Milano, please, let me know: I'm in debt of a good bottle of wine

regards to all of you.

Unhappy Clara HD frozen screen on language menu + Image please?

Hello, I've recently bought a second-hand Kobo Clara HD from Warehouse deals and when turned on, the screen is irresponsive. I can't do anything, even after trying soft reset and manual reset nothing happens, because no menus appear. I can push and hold the power button for as much as I want, but nothing happens.

Can I have an Image to make my ereader work please? (and what I need to do in order to load the image)
