RS Pi - UK Outside China Inside?

Wed Mar 20, 2013 2:01 pm

Hi,
I've got a few Raspberry Pi's and they are from RS.
The pakage says "Raspberry Pi B Made in United Kingdom"
But the board inside has printet "Made in China" on the side.
So now I'm a bit confused.

I read on the news that there are some problems with SD Cards... I think there is a problem with cheap Pi's
I have a Hynix chip on mine ! and the SD card is NOT booting at all!
Same card workd flawless on my Farnell (Samsung) Pi.
And it's a brand new card made from the latest official image downloaded a few minutes ago.

Edit:
I found a solution for the SD Card problem.
I updated the "new" sd card on my other Raspberry pi and then it worked!

There is an item about wrong OS.
