Forgot my Pinebook password. Booting from MIcroSD doesn't work.
#1
I forgot my Pinebook password (which essentially turns my Pinebok Pro into a brick).
Flashed Manjaro 20.1 to a rel 10 MicroSD using the steps found on https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/NOOB
Insert the  MicroSD into the slot on the Pinebook but it doesn't lock in and it feels loose (?). It can go in further but then it pops back out. (?)
Of course, it doesn't boot from the Micro SD.

What am I doing wrong?
Why is the MicroSD not fitting into the USB?

Thanks.
Scott
