Re: upgrading from Pi3 to Pi3B+

I thought I was polite. Sorry if it seemed otherwise. The issue am am seeing is, I got a Pi3B+ but the sdcard out of my Pi3 won't boot it. I have a wonderful colourful square thing in the middle of the screen which stays there until I remove the power. On the Pi3, it is there for a fleeting instant ...

You need to update with the card in the 3B before it can be used in the 3B+.

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
This should be done on a regular basis.
If only it were that simple.
Wrong answer, but full marks for effort.

upgrading from Pi3 to Pi3B+ [solved]

I got a Pi3B+ but the sdcard out of my Pi3 won't boot it.
Is there something simple I can do to make it work? I don't really want to spend a week installing again from scratch and then customising it to suit. I already did all that.

Little cardboard boxes

As a Pi collector, I also collect and save the little cardboard box which it arrives in or with. I'm not impressed with the shoddy excuse for a box that my new Pi3B+ arrived in, it is impossible to open without damaging it, and it is not a patch on the lovely boxes my Pi2 & Pi3 came in. The boxes fo...

Re: How to safely remove MicroSD?

If you are taking it out to rewrite it, then there is no special procedure as the rewrite will overwrite all the existing files whether they are corrupted or not.
Switch the Pi off first though.

Re: Pi 3 can't get RDP to fully work [CISCO, RDP, WS2012R2]

After re-reading your original question, I'm confused about the way your lan is wired and my netmask suggestion could be wrong. I initially thought you had a lan of 10.1.x.x and a gateway to the wider world, but you seem to have three gateways/routers involved plus a fourth route to the internet, bu...

Re: Problem with the date

The Pi does not have a clock. Once you tell it the time & date, it will remember until it is powered off. It then forgets the time & date because it doesn't have a clock. When you apply power to the Pi, you either have to tell it the time & date or let it connect to the internet and find out for its...

Re: Pi 3 can't get RDP to fully work [CISCO, RDP, WS2012R2]

On eth0, set your netmask to 255.255.0.0
it is currently at 255.255.255.0
or 10.1.10.244/16 instead of 10.1.10.244/24
This will cure your problems.
