Unable to boot armbian
#1
I can't make any armbian image boot from sdcard on my ROCK64 rev2.

The sdcard is fine and well written with a single ext4 partition on it but the board just doesn't boot and leaves me a blank screen.
I have no problem running ayufan debian images but they have a vfat boot partition instead of armbian images.

Is there anything I'm missing ? Could anybody please help me ?
Thanks

I can't get anything to boot.
My thread was also ignored.

I have a custom ArchLinux Arm script that I used to install back in February, and that one works. I bought 3 more Rock64 boards and they don't boot. No errors, nothing. They just light up all their lights and do nothing.

On what platform are you formatting and burning the image onto the SD card. Try using SD Formatter and Win32 Disk Imager. I've heard a number of people have experienced problems with Balena. Try my suggestion. You've nothing to loose.
