Thanks @S-M

Hopefully the OP will not mind if I widen the scope of this thread a little.

I saw a post that referenced "safe mode" and "dd". I have used dd previously with Pi's but I haven't been able to find details of the Omega in Safe Mode.

Now we have SD cards working could someone advise the procedure for cloning our Omega's as I hate the way the upgrades work and I'm confident many users will be wasting lots of time restoring work they have already done.
