DietPi not booting
#1
I saw that DietPi was highly recommended and had a Pinebook version.  I created a SD card with Etcher and the Pine64 Installer but neither will boot properly on my Pinebook 14 with the original 1366x768 display and the 64GB eMMC upgrade.

I see the same problem with the Dev Armbian using Kernel 4.19, so far other than the stock OS I have only been able to get Armbian Stable Kernel 3.10 to boot from SD and later install to the eMMC (had to format ext2 for it to work).

Any ideas?  I have the serial adapter on order to see if I can catch any messages on the serial console.

I have the exact same configuration and the exact same experience.

1. flashing DietPi to the SD card - boots and Pinebook turns off after several seconds

2. 
Code:
wget https://dietpi.com/downloads/images/DietPi_Pinebook-ARMv8-Stretch-Desktop.7z
7z x *.7z
dd if=$(find DietPi*.img) of=/dev/mmcblk2
The screen remains black, the Power LED glows

3. I used the emmc - USB adapter fro the Pine shop, and flashed the image right to the emmc module. No boot, dark screen, Power LED glows

I upgraded my LCD to a 1920x1080 one and it all works now. No idea why since they claim it’s supposed to support both the 1366x768 and 1920x1080 displays.

I have tried the Diet-Pi and the Manjaro builds from http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pineboo...re_Release and the Manjaro build works fine whereas Diet-Pi is not booting up.

As this was a 2017 build, I expect I don't have the 1920x1080 LCD.

Which display did you use for the upgrade ? Are we sepaking about the 11" or the 14" Pinebook ?
