I am hitting my wits end, and I am about to return my board. I have tried using the Raspberry Imager on both Mac and PC. I have tried Balena Etcher on both PC and Mac. I have tried disk utility on Mac. I have done all of these with both the armbian and ubuntu image isos. I have tried three different cards; a 32gb Samsung Evo, a 128gb Samsung Pro Plus, and an 8gb Sandisk Ultra in every permutation of card-image-method to no avail. I’ve tried using three separate USB to microSD and inserting the micro into it’s full-size carrier adapter.
I am getting no video just solid red and green lights. I’ve tried two different 3A power supplies and I have checked the power and video with a Pi3B+.
If you correctly flash the correct software, all of our boards will boot correctly. If you are having problems with multiple boards, there is something wrong with either your process or the machine you are using to flash or the MicroSD card.
I gave up. I was finally able to see it on my network. It was never fully booting or at least I never got an image on a monitor and could not ssh into it. I sent it back to Amazon. That was way more difficult than it needed to be.
