Unable to install Umbrel OS - "Couldn´t mount file"


trying to set up Umbrel on Raspberry Pi 4. After downloading umbrel-os-v.0.4.1 from github into Windows 10, I can not run the file. I am getting the error “Couldn´t mount file - Disk image is corrupted”

I have tried all the troubleshooting fixes recommended on-line to no avail.

Have all the hardware ready and I am really looking forward to set up the node, but got stuck on step 1! Be grateful if someone could advise on how to proceed.


Did you download this file: https://github.com/getumbrel/umbrel-os/releases/download/v0.4.1/umbrel-os-v0.4.1.zip ?
You can continue to Step 3 on the https://getumbrel.com/#start (the Raspberry Pi portion of How to Install") Windows 10 can’t mount the image, since it contains a ext4 filesystem that it doesn’t understand, but Balena Etcher does.

Damn I am a noob, I got ahead of myself and thought you had to somehow run the downloaded file on Windows before flashing the SD card.

I’ll of course continue to Step 3.

Sorry about the silly question and thanks for your help!
