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:
