Pine64 not booting with image
#1
hi,

I am using pine64-image-debianmate-310101bsp.img.
I setup my 64 SD card on my Mac Pro.
Then I went to boot the Pine64, device powered up but I saw not boot sequence on the Dell display. It's an old 19" display. Should I have at least since the typical ASCII boot characters and info?

These are the steps I used to get myself in this mess...

Unmount the SD
TheM5:$ diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk4
Unmount of all volumes on disk4 was successful
TheM5:$

unxz the image:
TheM5:$ ls *.xz
pine64-image-debianmate-310101bsp.img.xz
TheM5:$ unxz pine64-image-debianmate-310101bsp.img.xz

copy the image:
TheM5:$ sudo dd if=pine64-image-debianmate-310101bsp.img of=/dev/disk4 bs=1m
Password:
3684+0 records in
3684+0 records out
3862953984 bytes transferred in 451.011079 secs (8565098 bytes/sec)
TheM5:$


Then go boot the SD card in the Pine64
Nadda on the display. This is a working display I use it with my Raspberry Pi

What did I mess up? Huh

thanks

Mike

I'm not a mac person, but as far as i know you need to use rdiskX for writing images to the whole SD card (and not just a partition).

sudo dd if=pine64-image-debianmate-310101bsp.img of=/dev/rdisk4 bs=1m

But maybe my knowledge there is obsolete. maybe it's worth a try.

rdisk is faster! I´m on a mac and use "rdisk" instead of "disk". But i don´t know if it can cause problems when using "disk"

Thanks for the response.
Should I re-insert the SD card back into my mac and go with the posted solution?

sudo dd if=pine64-image-debianmate-310101bsp.img of=/dev/rdisk4 bs=1m

thanks again!

as i said, i think it's worth a try. if it doesn't work we can put our thinking helmets back on.

Oh and one more thing. Is the SD card class 10 / UHS-1? I had an old class 4 card lying around, and that one did not work. The card has to be fast enough.

Still no joy.
I don't see anything on my display. It looks like the device is not trying to boot. I do see a power LED come on and that is it.
Sad

I am using a brand new PNY Prime Performance 64GB micro SD XC card.
Thank you,

Mike

This is what I did on the second try,

do you have any other sd card you could try it with? sometimes there are compatibility problems with cards, when they have to be booted. just to rule that one out.

oh and one more thing: are you using a monitor or a tv? do you use any adapters? does the monitor support 1920x1080 @ 60Hz?

I've had no issues burning my microSD card with my mac. I followed the same instructions that you did.

Maybe you have a bad card or a bad SD card slot.

Successfully booted. I moved the pine64 over to another display, which I new supported 1080 (for my PS4) and it booted.
It was a display issue and NOT an SD card or OS imaging issue.

Thank you everyone!

YAY. congrats. you can force the system to boot in other resolutions by editing the boot.conf file.
