I'm attempting to install un-netinst using the instructions here. My ultimate aim is to install an Ethereum Client.

I have reformatted my 64GB SD disk to FAT32 and copied the files as instructed (using Windows7 and Macroit Partition Manager):

SD card setup for EthEmbedded

When I power up the Pi (3 Model B V1.2), the power LED comes on but nothing else happens.

I get no signal to the monitor.

What steps should I take to debug this?

The install config file is as below:

preset=server
packages=sudo,nano,screen,dphys-swapfile,git,unzip # comma separated list of extra packages
mirror=http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/
release=jessie
hostname=ethpi
domainname=
rootpw=root
cdebootstrap_cmdline=
bootsize=+128M # /boot partition size as given to fdisk
rootsize=     # / partition size in megabytes, leave empty to use all free space
timeserver=time.nist.gov
ip_addr=dhcp
ip_netmask=0.0.0.0
ip_broadcast=0.0.0.0
ip_gateway=0.0.0.0
ip_nameservers=
online_config= # URL to extra config that will be executed after installer-config.txt
usbroot= # set to 1 to install to first USB disk
cmdline="dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=ttyAMA0,115200 kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 elevator=deadline"
rootfstype=ext4
rootfs_mkfs_options=
rootfs_install_mount_options='noatime,data=writeback,nobarrier,noinit_itable'
rootfs_mount_options='errors=remount-ro,noatime'

My initial thoughts are that the FAT32 formatting is somehow incorrect. Windows indicates that the card is FAT32 formatted (RightClick->Properties). Is this enough to confirm that the format is correct?

EDIT:

I've also tried the following suggested by GitHub user 4eMaLo:

I got it to work for me by copying the boot/ directory from the official reposiory into the SD root and adding

[pi3] initramfs installer-rpi2.cpio.gz

to config.txt

Unfortunately I still get no response, aside from power on LED, from the Pi however.

The problem was that the SD Card was not correctly formatted to FAT32. The Window7 "properties" dialogue box did show it as FAT 32.

I changed formatting tools and managed to get it working - although not completely.
