  1. I followed the SD card trail and tried a different SD card (16 GB micro-SD with SD-Adapter instead of the 4 GB full size SD). I noticed a click when inserting while the normal SD card made none, but could not be inserted farther. And now it booted. Very odd.
  2. Thank you for answering. If the SD card could not be detected, shouldn't it behave as there would be no SD card inserted? I'm asking because I've tried that and got no output at all. So from my naive understanding it seems to have found the SD card.
  3. No idea what could cause the problem? Is it the right image for this Banana Pi M1? Is there something I should check on the SD card using a Linux? I don't have a TTL-to-USB serial adapter.
  4. In the last weeks I've successfully installed Armbian Debian Stretch 5.59 onto a Banana Pi M2 Berry, now I'm trying with a Banana Pi M1. From https://www.armbian.com/bananapi/ I've downloaded the Debian Stretch image and wrote it to my 4GB SD-card using Etcher (on Windows 10) - Etcher meant it was successfully after writing. I've safely ejected the SD-card from Windows, plugged it into the Banana Pi M, but it tries to boot from the network. Then I've taken a look at https://dl.armbian.com/bananapi/archive/ and downloaded Armbian-5.59 Debian Stretch image, wrote it with Etcher again, booted. Same issue. It shows a red armbian logo with "initializing boot loader" and below output (typed from screenshots, so there might be typos): HDMI connected: Setting up a 1920x1080 hdmi console (overscan 0x0) Error: no valid bmp image at 66000000 In: serial Out: vga Err: vga SCSI: SATA link 0 timeout AHCI 0001.0100 32 slots 1 ports 3 Gbps 0x1 impl SATA mode flags: ncq stag pm led clo only pmp pio slum part ccc apst Net: eth0: ethernet@01c50000 230454 bytes read in 32 ms (6.9 MiB/s) starting USB...
