I finally had some time to play with the new "Weezy" image of Debian.

I'mm using a SanDisk Extreme 16MB SD card. I like this card and it it fast, but my Raspberry Pi wouldn't boot.

It looks like default "Weezy" image still didn't have the latest firmware patches.

I was finally able to get it to boot after putting the latest firmware on the SD card FAT partition.

Here is the process I did to make it work. I'm using OS X to load the SD card. (Note: These are not complete steps)

1. Download and dd the img.
Code: Select all
dd if=2012-06-18-wheezy-beta.img of=/dev/diskx

2. Clone the git raspberry firmware.
Code: Select all
git clone git://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware.git

3. Copy the firmware/boot files to the FAT partition on the SD card.
Code: Select all
cp -pr firmware/boot/* /Volumes/Untitled/

Thank you for this tip on getting it to work with this card.

First time booting the Pi and I was debating if it was DOA :) This fixed my issue.
