Followed the directions to a T, 7 zip, Win32 disk imager, the correct ubuntu and ras pie images.
Strong power supply and 2 different micro sd cards with fast write speeds one samsung one Scan Disk with 80 and 100 transfer speeds.
Also tried https://libreelec.tv/ Same result. Solid Blue and Solid Red light. No green light and nothing whatsoever showing up on my monitors.
All I get is a sold blue and solid red light. No data shows at all shows up on my screens. Tried 3 different monitors view sonic, dell and a tv monitor.
No green light, no text on monitor, no grub menu.
Am I doing something wrong or is my brand new Potato toast?
UPDATE, after trying the recommended setup I went with ubuntu and BalenaEtcher and now have a functional device. My Potato is not toast, but the recommended set up did not work for me. Samsung micro sd, viewsonic monitor, ubuntu and Balena Etcher Whoo Hoo.
