Is that CentOs 7 confirmed to run on RPi3B+?
if not, then the RPi3B+ will not boot.....

Better seek help from the CentOS forum......
"Don't come to me with 'issues' for I don't know how to deal with those
Come to me with 'problems' and I'll help you find solutions"

Some people be like:
"Help me! Am drowning! But dont you dare touch me nor come near me!"

deleted duplicate post.

The lightening icon tells you you are using bootcode that does not support the 3B+, meaning your OS is not updated to the PI 3B+.
Read the boot problem sticky.

moved post to "other OS"

Darn it - my response was deleted in the other thread :twisted: :roll:

The 3B+ is now supported https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterest ... rch/armhfp and a new kernel was released yesterday

You may get some step by step build instructions from https://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/arm-dev

It may be worth junking the power adapter as well - I found RH power hungry on HP blades (and had issues with my Pi 3 with a cheap adapter - since learnt :oops: )
Need Pi spray - these things are breeding in my house...
