Building a new SD card
#1
I'm trying to get my RockPro64 onto a new SD card. Under Linux, as root I run:

7z x ./Armbian_20.02.1_Rockpro64_buster_legacy_4.4.213.7z
./balenaEtcher-1.5.70-x64.AppImage ./Armbian_20.02.1_Rockpro64_buster_legacy_4.4.213.img

When done, my SD looks like this:

root@mozart:/home/njc/dev/taz# fdisk -l /dev/sdc
Disk /dev/sdc: 14.9 GiB, 15931539456 bytes, 31116288 sectors
Disk model: Card  Reader    
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x019a33bc

Device     Boot Start     End Sectors  Size Id Type
/dev/sdc1       32768 2899967 2867200  1.4G 83 Linux
root@mozart:/home/njc/dev/taz# 

I then put it into the RockPro64, power it up and I see nothing. I have no WiFi and the console doesn't spit out anything.

The old SD card that still boots (but with an OS that is very unstable) has:

njc@taz:~$ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev            1.9G     0  1.9G   0% /dev
tmpfs           388M  5.4M  383M   2% /run
/dev/sda2       1.8T   35G  1.7T   2% /
tmpfs           1.9G     0  1.9G   0% /dev/shm
tmpfs           5.0M  4.0K  5.0M   1% /run/lock
tmpfs           1.9G     0  1.9G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/dev/mmcblk0p6  112M  4.0K  112M   1% /boot/efi
tmpfs           388M     0  388M   0% /run/user/1001
njc@taz:~$ 

Is this enough information to figure out what is wrong?

I've upgraded SDs with x86, Pi and Toradex but the RockPro64 is giving me no end of fits.
