My Raspberry Pi won't boot with a keyboard plugged in. It is a wireless Logitech two-in-one keyboard, and it says:

end Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt.

How can I fix this problem?

    By wireless you don't mean "bluetooth", do you? If this for sure only happens with the keyboard in, it is probably one of two things: 1) Not enough power, use at least a 2 amp supply, or 2) Driver glitch, which may happen if this is a highly non-standard keyboard. You could also try plugging the keyboard in after boot to see what happens. USB keyboards and mice can be hotplugged and unplugged and always work, except to the extent that they may cause a voltage drop on the A/B and brown the pi out. – goldilocks May 7 '15 at 13:16

I found some information in NOOBS RaspBMC and a kernel panic, and there seems to be a solution. Check it out and see if that fixes the problem.

  • I wouldn't do that unless you are on a system that really should use mmcblk0p6 as the root filesystem. On plain Raspbian that won't even exist. On NOOBs it would represent one or another OS type. – goldilocks May 7 '15 at 13:12

    It would be better if you summarised the possible solution(s) here (in your answer). – Peter Mortensen May 8 '15 at 18:18
