Won't boot

Sat Aug 12, 2017 3:41 pm

I have tried everything from the STICKY: Is your Pi not booting? (The Boot Problems Sticky) :(

The Red light stays on. My LED Monitor is black.

I used PiBakery to write to my 64 GB card.

If you are 110% certain that you correctly used PiBakery to write the most recent Raspbian to your card, the next things I would try are:

1. Use etcher to write the card. No need to unzip the downloaded image file as etcher will do that.

2. Search for h2testw and use* it to test the card. Large capacity cards are prime targets for fakers.

(* runs under Wine on OSX or find an alternative.)
