  1. I fixed it. I reloaded the OS on the SD card an it worked after that. It must not have loaded correctly the first time.
  2. I installed Armbian onto a reliable 16GB class 10 SD card, put it into an Orange Pi 3 with a 5v 3000 mA power supply (not a phone charger) and I've bumped into this error.. ALERT! /dev/mmcblk0p1 does not exist. Dropping to a shell! The armbianmonitor -u command was not found so I had to take a photo of the computer screen. I'm not sure what is going on here and I couldn't find someone who had this error on an Orange Pi 3 before. If anyone has some advice I'd love to hear it.
  3. It said to "Insert the SD card into the slot, connect a cable to your network if possible or a display and power your board. (First) boot (with DHCP) takes up to 35 seconds with a class 10 SD Card." Is there some kind of boot menu on an Orange Pi I'm missing? It just took me to the android based OS as if I needed to select SD card in a boot menu. The Instructions sound just like a raspberry pi but it did't work that way. With a Raspberry Pi you normally just restore a disk image (.img file) onto a class 10 SD card and plug it all in.
  4. Hello Everyone, I have an Orange Pi 3 and I want to wipe the default OS and replace it with Armbian. It has some foreign default OS which appears to be Android based and without a word of English. The Armbian documentation wasn't much help because it didn't provide any instructions for this sort of hardware. If any of you could give me some pointers that would be very much appreciated.
