I have reformatted my 64GB SD disk to FAT32 and copied the files as instructed (using Windows7 and Macroit Partition Manager):
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?
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
Unfortunately I still get no response, aside from power on LED, from the Pi however.
