Re: RPI4 and Noobs

What colour is the top left corner of your rainbow square - Red or Magenta ? It's possible you have your HDMI lead plugged into the wrong socket. it must be the one next to the USB-C power socket (farthest from the 4 USB sockets). Or do you have a file called `autoboot.txt` on your NOOBS partition? ...

Re: Pi2+ First NOOBs install hit by power cut %-(

Ah yes, the type & size of SD cards is often overlooked when having such formatting/booting problems. It is important that your SD card reader (USB or otherwise) is suitable for the type of card you have. Many older PC/laptop built-in readers may not be adequate.

Sorry, after re-reading your posts, I had skipped over the fact that you had already wiped it: since I've been able to erase it with the Mac disk utility to give a single FAT32 MS Dos partition. So if you've re-copied the noobs files back to the card, then 'runinstaller' would already be there (it i...

Re: Pi2+ First NOOBs install hit by power cut %-(

On the noobs SD card that suffered the power cut, edit recovery.cmdline and add 'runinstaller' to that single line.

That should get NOOBS to repartition the SD card so you can start again.

Re: RP4 Install Raspian, Then No Video

If you get the 4 raspberries (and often some scrolling boot text) followed by a blank screen, then a commona cause is often that the new vc4_(f)kms drivers are not working well with your HDMI monitor. This is often due to different parsing of the EDID data from your monitor, or the use of a default ...

That happened to one of mine, but I managed to solder it back on again. It is just tacked on with 4 blobs of solder: 2 on either side of the slot and 2 on the opposite edge near the contacts. You may still see their remains through a magnifying glass.

Re: RPi4 with MicroSD Extender Boot Failure

As I stated above, Pi4 uses a faster SD card access method that operates at a lower voltage. NOOBS prevents that mode from being used using the quirks option because it prevented rebooting into a different partition. I suspect that is the reason that NOOBS works and other OSes don't. It would be nic...
