My RPi2 was working as an OMV server. Recently I needed to power it off and now it is stuck in a boot loop: it boots, shows many information lines at a very fast pace and reboots.

I tried to reformat SD card, installed multiple distros but nothing helps. The only information I was able to read was something to do with resolve.conf and USB not recognized.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • use a COM port with USB2COM and record the boot log on another PC. Post it here, so I'll be able to help you further Feb 1, 2016 at 14:23
  • hmm there is one small problem though - how to do it? i searched "usb2com record boot" but not a single answer :(

  • you need to use usb com port adapter, like this Feb 1, 2016 at 16:04
  • This part was pretty clear(sorry for my low precision:( ), my problem is rather what to use to record the boot sequence to a file ? :)

    This has happened to me before when the pi was not supplied enough voltage to function properly. Try changing wires, etc.

problem solved, faulty was the power USB port, it works great when powered by GPIO. Thanks @Alexey Vesnin, I would never try to power it that way on my own.
