I recently got my own Raspberry Pi (2 B V1.1) I have got an 8 GB micro SD for it. I used the standard procedure to put Wheezy on it. It shows the splash screen, and the console-output for about 3 seconds. The last thing I can see is:

[2.702751] Freeing unused kernel memory: 384K (80754000 - 807b4000)

then it all restarts.

I also tried NOOBS. It just shows the splash screen for a second. Then a just blue screen for two seconds. (repeat)

What is broken?

  • Could be a few things without more info. Have you tried a different SD card, also how is your PI setup (so peripherals, power supply etc)

Ok, after some experimenting with a friends pi I've found out that it was a faulty power cable
