So, I did all three of these things and now it works. I haven't gone back and undone them one at a time to see which one it was. If I have a minute, I'll figure out which one and then post back here for the next guy.HawaiianPi wrote:I wouldn't worry about Windows saying something is corrupt. It says that whenever you connect a drive that wasn't formatted in Windows. I get that all the time with flash drives I format in Linux, and when I let Windows "scan and repair" the drive it always says no errors were found. That's just Windows being stupid.
As for your issue, that is odd. The first thing I would suspect is your HDMI>VGA adapter, because I have found those to be troublesome in the past.
Are you sure the Pi is not booting? Have you tried to SSH into it when you're getting no video?
Try adding hdmi_force_hotplug=1 to your config.txt file, and maybe config_hdmi_boost=7 as well.
thank you, firmware updatedDougieLawson wrote: ↑Wed May 23, 2018 7:53 pmThe first thing to try to get over the "won't boot after shutdown" bug is sudo rpi-update; sudo poweroff pull power and reboot. That gets the 4.14.42-v7+ kernel with new bootcode that solves that boot problem. It's been out for a couple of days and is running on 13 out of 15 of my raspberries.
