USB storage capacity shortened after Mavericks install

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a USB 3.0 pendrive which was 16GB from SanDisk and used it to install Mavericks on a cheap Toshiba laptop (which worked perfectly), and used Win32DiskImager to put the dmg file onto it. However, after formatting the disk, I saw that my storage capacity on that USB had shortened from about 14GB (which was normal) to around 5.2GB. This USB cost me under £10 ($15.51) and I can get a new one, but I would really like it if someone knew how to get my capacity back up to what it was before.

Regards,

EDIT : When I go to my Disk Management on Windows, I can see there is 9GB unallocated but I can't merge those two partitions together.

EDIT : Woops, I did some diskpart, it's OK now.

Hi, I had the same problem and it's easy to solve.

1º- Open cmd and type “diskpart”
2º- Type: “list disk”
3º- Select the disk: “select disk 3″ (Put the number corresponding to your pendrive)
4º- Type “clean” (to erase all partition)

5º- And after all you just need to format it, the problem will be solved ;)

 

Now I have a question for you, it's your processor a AMD? If it's please tell how did you installed, because I'm having a lot of troubles before installation

    • It's basically a problem with your graphics card, so try doing this.   In the boot options go to graphics injector and make a tick on intel graphics injector.   Also make sure you go to your bios and disable your discrete graphics Card.   After doing these to things, it solved the issue for me!! Hope it helps!
    • I installed Yosemite with the use of iGPU but when I installed the eGPU as mentioned on the title the loading screen stuck on caution. I also tried the bootflags such us  nv_disable=1 and nvda_drv=1 also I tried GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No but still no luck. What might be the possible problem? Image link
