I am trying to use Imager for Ubuntu (first recommended choice) but after a seemingly successful write and verify when trying to boot up the green led blinks 7 times in cycles. This means that there is no kernel.img on first fat32 partition. And indeed there is no file with such name in system-boot partition. I will keep trying but this should be fixed I believe...
Kernel is not necessarily called kernel.img
Check if there is perhaps a different name specified in config.txt
(And some operating systems may also chainload a different bootloader -like u-boot- to load and boot the real kernel.
The more complex things get, the more that can go wrong during boot...)
config.txt has this for Raspberry Pi:
# The unusual ordering below is deliberate; older firmwares (in particular the
# version initially shipped with bionic) don't understand the conditional
# [sections] below and simply ignore them. The Pi4 doesn't boot at all with
# firmwares this old so it's safe to place at the top. Of the Pi2 and Pi3, the
# Pi3 uboot happens to work happily on the Pi2, so it needs to go at the bottom
# to support old firmwares.
my Raspberry Pi is very old - maybe it is not compatible with this config?
