First boot - no fan, no display... is it broken?
#1
Hi,

I just received my Rockpro64, I plugged the fan in, and then added the SATA adapter and some drives, plugged in the HDMI, made an armbian sdcard according to the instructions, and then plugged in the board with the power supply I ordered from Pine64.

I can hear the drives spin up, I see a little green light, but nothing else. The fan doesn't spin (is it supposed to?) I get nothing on the HDMI display.

What can I do to debug what is going on here?

Thanks!

An update to my issue.... it seems the problem was the wrong image was used to burn onto the SDcard. I had expected some kind of POST or something to suggest that things were functioning, but that is not the case. Once I burned the right image, things were able to boot.
