Re: pi4 unable to boot either osmc or raspbian buster

Just to end this thread with an answer, I got a replacement Pi 4 and it worked immediately, without any troubleshooting required. The first was defective.

Re: pi4 unable to boot either osmc or raspbian buster

Well, after many hours of trying to get thing to boot up it went back from whence it came this afternoon. As a last resort I put the two Recovery files on an SD card and I got the flashing green led's as I should get, so it wasn't a faulty SD Card socket. When I took it into the shop he put it on t...

Re: pi4 unable to boot either osmc or raspbian buster

Some input would be appreciated. How can I differentiate between a boot issue and a display issue?

Drilled it down to something weird i've never had to deal with before - It won't boot without an HDMI, got the usual recommendations of hdmi_hotplug_enabled set to 1
Did you get it working by adding this line to the config txt file?

There is no OSMC for Pi4 available currently.
So putting my already setup OSMC SD card from my Pi3b will never boot in Pi4?

Re: pi4 unable to boot either osmc or raspbian buster

I've now tried Noobs but to no avail.

I've also adjusted the config file for hdmi_force_hotplug=1.

Re: RPi4

I've since got another SD card and installed Raspian Duster Lite on it. Confirmed it worked on Rasperry Pi 3B and inserted into Pi 4 - still nothing. Just 4 flashing light pattern.

I feel like the SD card slot is goosed.

pi4 unable to boot either osmc or raspbian buster

Hi,

Just got the pi4 and unable to get it to boot either osmc or raspian buster.

Both the sd cards used work in my pi3b without issue. I see the start.elf file in the boot partition and all.

The green light is flashing 4 times whether the sd card is in or out. Any ideas?

Please help.
