I have a Pi 3 and a Pi Zero. I have a sandisk sd card a no name sd card. My Pi 3 will boot with both sd cards. The Pi zero will only boot with the sandisk. I am using the same latest image on both cards. The Pi Zero performed as if there was no sd card ( no LED activity)
I have tried:
- multiple no name sd cards formatted re imaged, all using win32 disk imager
- performed sudo update, upgrade, dis-update and rpi-update
- copied the boot from one to the other.
- Attempted with RISCOS
- Attempted NOOBS v 2.4.4
- Attempted Stretch light
After placing the old SD card into the pi zero for about 5 min I pulled it out to check the logs. I see not update in any logs from /var/log/
- Pi zero 1.3
- SD card 8gb class 10
- Sam power used for Pi3 and Pi zero
Why would the Pi zero be sd card sensitive? any other troubleshooting tips?
