I'm not able to run 64-bit OS on my Raspberry Pi 4. If I do these steps (https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/installation/installing-images/mac.md) with a 32bit OS it works fine, but if I use Ubuntu or FreeBSD then it doesn't boot. The screen keeps blank. Is there any special step when it is a 64 bit OS?

Quoting from FreeBSD/ARM on the Raspberry Pi family

For Raspberry Pi 4 (NOT supported yet) use the image for RPI3

You might want to try the latest FreeBSD-13.0-CURRENT-arm64-aarch64-RPI3 (410MB).

No RPI4 has been reported installed yet.

FWIW, as of Linux see Support of Raspberry Pi.

  • Is there a 64 bit OS available for rp 4? Aug 21, 2019 at 11:56
  • There is no RPI4 dedicated image in CURRENT yet. Meanwhile, Wiki suggests using RPI3 images. Aug 21, 2019 at 12:00
  • @HolaSoyEduFelizNavidad there area a few listed here: raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/100926/… Your title, question, and followup aren't consistent. Are you asking about any 64-bit OS for the Pi 4 or specifically FreeBSD and Ubuntu? Please edit your question to clarify.
