I tried the NetBSD image, the resulting SD is formatted with FAT and the card will not even power-up.

Am I missing something obvious? I am very new with SBC in general.

Thank sin advance,

Yes, I get the same result. I downloaded the image via http://www.invisible.ca/arm/ because the link on the RockPro64 wiki doesn't work. I get the FAT partition showing up with all the files that look pretty normal. 

I put it into my RockPro64 and if I leave the ethernet cable unconnected I do get the white LED lighting up, but it does nothing else. I get no HDMI output and it seems to do nothing.

If I try to boot it with the ethernet cable connected, I don't get the white LED light.

If I boot without the ethernet cable, wait for the white LED and then put in the ethernet cable, it doesn't get an IP address. So I assume it just is not booting or doing anything whatsoever.

If I load the SD card into Linux, it says it's unable to mount a 1.4GB ufs partition due to some error on the partition. I tried to manually mount it and wasn't able to.

I saw evidence that it has worked for at least one person here 3 months ago: https://forum.frank-mankel.org/topic/225/netbsd (Bullet64 on this forum)
It might have been fixed according to the netbsd mailing list:

I loaded on a Linux box,
NetBSD-evbarm-aarch64-201906031130Z-rockpro64.img.gz

onto a 16Gb SD card with: gzip -dc Net... | dd of=/dev/sdd obs=1M

At first power on, white light on after 10 secs, power up
USB hub, brief flash on SATA disk cont. It's resizing the root filesystem on the SD card.

Second power up, similar, network up DHCP.
Connection refused, ssh and telnet.

Waited another 5 mins, ssh again, works, need password...

=========== I do not have a serial console cable ===========
So, can anybody give us a username and password as SSH will
not accept <No Password>.

Ping jmcneill at PINE64 IRC, he is netBSD guru. When you have the info, please post here and share.
From the IRC group, I've been told, mount the SD card on another machine and create a user and set their password.
Oh that'd be so easy if I had another BSD box.
https://wiki.netbsd.org/tutorials/how_to...der_linux/

But on my Fedora 29 x86_64 box here, it doesn't work.
mount -t ufs -o ufstype=ufs2,ro /dev/sdd2 /mnt
mount: /mnt: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdd2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error.

In the above WIKI, it mentions, the partition /dev/sdd2 has several filesystems, not just one as the above mount command expects.
Note also the WIKI was last modified this month. WAS IT TRIED THIS MONTH?
AND, which Linux?

on the NETBSD wiki message, best place to question still back the original place. Glad to know that phone and you communicate well on the PINE64 IRC :-)
The current image works quite well. One MUST have a Serial console cable 3.3V TTL, 1500000 baud.

Add a USB SSD for faster disk when compiling apps.
X works after adding confs to /etc/ssh/sshd_conf and restart sshd
StrictModes no
X11Forwarding yes
X11DisplayOffset 10

Test with "ssh -Y [email protected]" and run: /usr/X11R7/bin/xeyes

NetBSD team: When can we have an ARMv8 repository?

"pkgsrc" ran through:

===> bootstrap started: Sun Jun 16 09:16:57 UTC 2019
===> bootstrap ended: Sun Jun 16 09:50:06 UTC 2019

Using "pkgsrc" to make "cmake" fails: *** Error code 9
ld: cannot find -luv
*** [cmake] Error code 1


Image NetBSD-evbarm-aarch64-201906160110Z-rockpro64.img.gz has SATA working, PCIe SATA controller and SSD WORKING
ASMedia PCIe to SATA controller

"pkgsrc" has so so many dependencies, making a system useful to actually compile an app very very painful.
First, I need "cmake" and that depends.... and depends....
