I am trying to boot noobs, or raspberry os, or lineageos, and i am getting some errors

Error when using sdcard "Failed to open device: 'sdcard' (cmd 371a0010 status lf0f0001)"

booting NOOBS gives me this when booting from sd card


asks for "RESET USB port-power 1000 ms" too

Raspberry os gives me this when booting from sd card, but i can boot via usb

mmc0: error -110 whilst initialising sd card

Lineage os I can't boot from sdcard neither usb and it loops in the same problem as noobs

Update with info from a comment:
SHA-256 sum check dont give any error. My boot order is f41. Booting raspberry os from usb drive, i cannot do SD Copier with SD card.

I had a similar situation with my RPi 4b, so perhaps this will help you. I tried flashing the image onto the SD card using dd, as described in the official RPi guide at https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/installation/installing-images/linux.md using 2021-01-11-raspios-buster-armhf.img with :

$ sha256sum 2021-01-11-raspios-buster-armhf.img
ace32c42e34d94cb175b15820af8bb13bd0b6a5e1360b0f58b9cf9c39013bd1d  2021-01-11-raspios-buster-armhf.img

This however did not work.

According to https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=58151#p1485558 the 4 times short blinking LED stated, that the start.elf file of the image was not correct or could not be found. So I concluded, that I would have to try another tool for flashing the image onto the SD card. The tool etcher was recommended, a bloated third party electron tool containing ads =( However, that one worked. It would have been good to have a working image dd onto the SD card, as I have done in the past, but alas that was not the case.

So this is my suggestion: Use the bloated etcher tool to write the SD card.

Hint: Then add an empty file ssh in the boot directory of the image, to be able to access the RPi using SSH. Then set the display resolution (required) in raspi-conf and enable VNC in there as well, to be able to access via VNC.

  • If dd did not write the image correctly to the SD card, there are three possible causes: 1) The image is faulty, 2) There was a hardware failure, 3) You did it wrong. Beyond your system being compromised or corrupted, there aren't any other possibilities.
