Not able to install and boot ARMBIAN on an Orange Pi 3 LTS


Recommended Posts

I am not able install and boot ARMBIAN on an Orange Pi 3 LTS

I am new to Orange Pi and only have basic experience as a Linux user.


/  I downloaded this image file from Armian website :-I


/ Formated a Scandisk 32GB A1 card using SDcardformatterv5

/ Used usbimager_1.0.8_wo-i686-win-gdi to write the image to the card


Problem: I repeated thew procedure above 3 times but OS doesn't install,

This is the log I get on the screen.. (unable to send screenshot - error 200), but the last lines are as fgollows:'

"Gave up waiting for root file system device.  Common problems:

  - Boot args (cat /proc/cmd line)

  - Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)

  - Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)

ALERT!  UUID=f20b78ef-d46e=4767-aa4c-33d3f7db7350 does not exist. Droping to shell!



I will appreciate if someone can give me some hints on what I am doing wrong.

Board: Not on the list

Clutching at straws here as I'm not familiar with this SBC.


What is the rated output of the PSU you are using to power your SBC? I believe it needs to be a minimum of 3 amps at 5 volts.

Also, some of the hardware on the LTS version is different to the non-LTS version of the Orange Pi 3. I'm assuming the device tree will be different?

At an absolute guess, is the device tree for the Orange Pi 3 incompatible with Orange Pi 3 LTS?
