I'm having trouble with my pi where I can write an rpi image like openelec/kodi or retropie, and the pi boots correctly the first time, but after I shut it down and power-off, when I restart, it won't start properly.
On restart, I get the rainbow screen, but then it will crash or hang and not finish booting.
If I re-image my sd card, it will boot fine again (the first time), but fail to boot after a power on/off cycle.
I'm assuming that whatever the issue is, it's unlikely to be specific to the image I'm running, but I'm not really sure what troubleshooting steps are worthwhile taking next?
- Removal/reinsertion doesn't affect the outcome, the card always needs to be re-imaged.
- I think heat is unlikely to be an issue, because this will occur both after a fresh install and the pi having been powered off for over 24h and also if it's been running for a few hours.
