New ROCK64 doesn't boot
#14
Double check to make sure your microSD card is fully inserted and CLICK-LOCKING INTO PLACE.

The Rock64 uses a push to lock, push to release microSD socket, similar to the old Raspberry Pi 2, but MUCH STIFFER (becomes easier after a few times, but takes a fairly good push the first time around).

Because of this it's easy for someone familiar with the newer Pi 3's light friction fit microSD to think they have the card inserted, when it's actually NOT MAKING CONTACT AT ALL.

May seem really silly, but did bite me for about 5 minutes when I tried the Rock64 for the first time.
