Re: Not Another PI3B + Trouble booting Topic :( ...Please HELP

@drgeoff,
To answer your question I had found and purchased a full size USB - USB cable specifically to run that test. Yes they are a rare cable these days.
I re-read that post and you are correct, the USB - USB method only works with: PI model A, A+ or Zero.

Thank you all for the replies.
