Cannot get my board to boot
#1
Hello,
I'm not super great at figuring these things out. But I'm trying to boot Dietpi on my rockpro64 board and all I get is a flashing white light. How can I fix this? I'm not really sure what to do. Detailed instructions would help a lot Big Grin thank you!

Try installing Armbian to rule out any hardware issues with your board. Install instructions can be found here https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/ROCKPro64_Software_Release

Yes I've just seen that. 404 error on them all. This is the link to the archive versions. Pick whichever suits, probably Buster current 5.4.8 and follow the instructions on how to install from the wiki page
Remember this is just to test if your board is booting.

Since above URL may change, the actual download page is https://www.armbian.com/download/ then click on ROCKPro64 -> https://www.armbian.com/rockpro64/ then scroll down to bottom where you will find links to builds.

That doesn't sound good.

I'm assuming you are using the official power supply from Pine. Do you have another power supply you could try.

It was the microSD. I tried another one today and got it fixed
