Can't boot when SD card inserted
#1
Exclamation 
Hello,
I am having a bit of a problem with my pineA64 2GB. I am trying to run AndroidTV 7.1 from the pine64 installer. When the card is inserted a red light turns on for around 2-4 seconds and then turns off when the card is out of the board the light stays on until turned off. 

Note: I've tried 2 different sd cards and both of them cause the same issue. One of the cards came with my board which had remixOS preinstalled I installed android 7 to test it and it worked but now it doesn't work with any os tried.

Does anyone know what might be causing the issue?

Kind Regards,
Petar

I understand your frustrations, but please do not post several times with the same issue. Instead, if you'd like to add additional information, edit this original post, or reply to it.

How long are you waiting at initial boot before pulling the plug? Have you tried burning any other OSes (not Android) to verify if it is affecting all OS options, or just Android? Have you tried downloading the images outside of the Pine64 Installer app?

Honestly, it reads to me that you might have some bad cards, or bad burns.

Sorry about the multiple posts I couldn't read the message displayed after the post so I thought it wasn't approved.

I've tried multiple OSes flashed outside of pine64 installer and the same issue, if it were the cards at least one of the 4, would've worked (I've tried 2 more after the post)

Kind Regards,
Petar

So it's probably bad writes, then. Are you extracting the compressed images before writing them? I'm guessing you used Etcher or dd when writing outside of the Pine Installer app?

Yes, I used dd at first and then tried Etcher same thing happens. any other suggestions also Yes I am not unzipping them when writing with etcher.

OK, Solved I've tried installing libreelec with etcher and the wifi/bt module removed now it works.
I think it is either the module is faulty or I installed it wrong.
