Debian base(102) n xfce(101) does not boot

I have downloaded debian base and xfce images from and followed the 'getting started' linux instructions for dd'ing. Using either of these images to boot Pine64 causes the pwr LED to go out after about 2 seconds.

I have two 2GB boards which boot correctly with RemixOS or Android on SDcards provided by Pine64. Now I am using different SDcards for Debian but they are new Samsung EVO class 10 cards purchased from Newegg. I'll review the wiki about counterfeit cards though I think that is a dead end.

Other thoughts:

- MD5 good.
- e2fsck -nf good on ROOTFS.

# lsblk /dev/sdf
sdf      8:80   1 29.8G  0 disk 
├─sdf1   8:81   1   50M  0 part 
└─sdf2   8:82   1    3G  0 part



PS. dd with bs=1m returns 'invalid number'. 1M worked. (From the 'Getting started' instructions.)
Made the correction to the bs=1m to bs=1M sorry I missed it
If you like my work be sure to check out my site or wish to donate to the cause

Cheers Big Grin

Happy to be of some small help.


My boot problem was resolved by a cold boot.. that is using the pwr btn for on/off is more like on/sleep.
