It's so frustrating. I tried OpenELEC & RaspBMC and they both do the same thing.NickBurns2000 wrote:I was running an earlier version, all it said was debian. I had that same problem where it would take sometimes three unplugs to get it going. Since the latest Raspbian version I don't see the problems booting but I do see the rainbow screen. I'm not sure if it's everytime.
Do you know anyone with a Raspberry Pi?linux_noob wrote: Could this somehow be a hardware flaw? Maybe my laptop's SD card port is causing the problem? I will try it on my Mac Mini and see what happens later on I guess.
I've also booted w/o anything hooked up besides power during a reboot to see if that would matter, which it doesn't.
It is not a problem as long it is only displayed temporarily. It indicates that the first file in the boot sequence has been loaded and initiated.liamJGC wrote:I have the same 'problem' - I didn't know it was a problem until this thread It doesn't affect me that much though, as it only lasts a short amount of time.
5. When i reboot it doesn't work i.e. i get colour pallet only. Reimaging the card and it works again.(55/58) upgrading raspberrypi-firmware [######################] 100%

Coloured splash screen
With recent firmware, a coloured splash screen is displayed after firmware (start.elf) is loaded. This should be replaced by linux console a second later. However if the coloured screen remains, it suggests the kernel.img file is failing to boot. Try replacing it with a known good one.
Immediately after displaying the splash screen, the PI starts consuming a little more current, if the PI resets at that moment its an indication that your PSU isn't able to deliver the full current your PI requires, but dips its output voltage below a minimum when loaded with the full current the PI needs.
You're correct. I should have finished by saying that the Pi should definitely soft reboot - regardless the colorful splash screen.toxibunny wrote:Not being able to soft-reboot isn't a feature, though...
