PINE A64 SBC: Clone of a functional 32GB SD card doesn't boot
#1
I have a Pine64 from the original Kickstarter (2016.) It boots from a 32GB SD card, which I've imaged from an Ubuntu16 Pine64 image file. 

I've created a full disk backup of this 32GB SD card using AOMEI Backupper, and then restored the entire disk to a new 64GB SD card. The restore is successful, and the disk looks OK, but the 64GB card won't boot. Putting it in the Pine64 and powering on simply remains at a black screen (the original SD boots as soon as I plug the Pine64 in. I don't have to press a "Start" button or anything.) 

I have also tried this with a 256 SD card, with the same results. 

I have tried copying the entire 32GB SD card with DD in linux, and restoring via DD. Same problem. 

What am I missing. Does the new disk have to have a boot sector activated or something?

I absolutely can't see the difference (see image for full details about the drive and copy)...

You best ask in the community channel for help: https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/Main_Page#C...nd_Support

I have edited your title and moved the post into the correct section, otherwise no one will find it.

@crocspot , I have removed your reply since the question was about the PINE A64 SBC, not a PinePhone.

Do you still have the original image? If you write it to a new 32GB card, does that work? If you write it to a 64GB card, does that work?

Apologies @fxc

Sorry about that miss post all !

It was "very" early in the morning after a late night and for some crazy reason I miss read it as a Pine Phone problem.

Thanks for cleaning my "mess" up and the moderation

All the best

Cool
