Re: Not Booting of a Swissbit SD card

I ended up putting the card in a Windows 10 machine as the laptop would not mount the card. Looked at the boot partition and also got a warning that the other partition would need to be formatted. Put the card in a Pi 3 and it still does not boot. Put the card back in the Pi B and it booted happily....

Yes it's different because it's a 'hard' error but in all other respects it is the same - red led for a short period of time (I didn't time it) followed by the act led repeatedly flashing four times.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 not booting. (Yeah, another one)

What are you using to power the Pi 3. It's a bit of a greedy bugger and needs a supply capable of 2 amps or more.

Not Booting of a Swissbit SD card

I have come across the weirdest issue. I've been running Raspbx on a Pi 2 quite some time. There is a script included that will write an .img file to an attached USB stick so in the event of a failure you can easily create a new, fully up to date SD card or to clone your system. I've had an SD card ...

The only file you need edit to connect to any AP is /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf and all you need to do is add the following at the end of the file network={ ssid="your ssid" psk="your wireless password" } So undo all that other stuff and make the above your only edit and it should all wo...

Re: 3A Power Supply without USB Hub

You can power your RPi via pins 2 and 25 of P1 instead of the micro usb connector. This will bypass the main fuse so take care not to accidentally short the 5v rail.

In fact it is normal in large scale production that you have to specify the exact parts. A serious production company would never use...
