Cannot get RockPro64 to boot
#1
I just got a brand new RockPro64 yesterday and I have not been able to get it to boot. I've tried several different OS images (OMV, Ubuntu, Debian, and Armbian). I've tried 2 different microSD cards. I've tried prepping the microSD cards using Ubuntu and MacOS, using built in tools and Etcher.

I get the same results no matter what I do:
  • The green power LED turns on
  • Ethernet lights turn on, and blink as if there is activity but never appears on my network.
  • If I hold down the power button the ethernet lights turn off
I am definitely using RockPro64 OS images.


Am I doing something wrong or did I get a bad board?

::UPDATE::
I sent the board back to the store I bought it from and they determined that it had a faulty MicroSD card reader.
