Were you using NOOBS 1.3.2 Lite which downloads the O.S.'s as it installs? If so I think the error message means that either a partial download of your requested O.S. occurred, or it was corrupted due to network (connection errors).titan1943 wrote:i setting up the raspberry Pi using NOOB software (v1.3.2) and i was able to see the screen for the OS setup. While installing the OSes i had chosen previously, halfway suddenly an error occurred and after closed the error message, it never boots up again.

As i am new to raspberry pi development, i totally no idea what's going on. what's that possibly to cause this to happen? can anyone please help me?
i have plug into my raspbery Pi model-B with :
1) sd card(16gb samsung microSDHC UHS-1 card)
2) power adapter(5V, 1.1A)
3) network cable
4) keyboard & mouse
5) and a RCA cable to my TV.
Several things come to mind:titan1943 wrote:Thanks for the replies. I was downloaded the full version of NOOBS, and I have already compare the checksum is correct.
Anyways, I'm currently reformatted my SD card and boot again the NOOBS in my Pi. Luckily, I was able to install raspbian successfully and prompted with a message box showing 'OS installed successfully'. After I pressed OK button, again the Pi shut down and never boot up again with a glowing red light. I tried to power on the raspberry pi again, it just doesn't want to boot, staying with the red light glowing forever there.
I have tried to troubleshoot the problem, referring to here http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting, its stated that Pi may not able to boot up when there are some files missing. I browse my sd card and found that 2 out of 3 files are missing, which is fixup.dat and start.elf, the only file i can found in my SD card is bootcode.bin.
One more thing, there is also no config.txt in there, but i have added and tested with no result too =(
my config.txt (edited using notepad++ with EOL in Unix mode) :
# Set stdv mode to PAL (as used in Europe)
# Force the monitor to HDMI mode so that sound will be sent over HDMI cable
# Set monitor mode to DMT
# Set monitor resolution to 1024x768 XGA 60Hz (HDMI_DMT_XGA_60)
# Make display smaller to stop text spilling off the screen
