Sorry about that, I only just caught up with the thread, so I didn't many to reply to that before now. Hm... first boot checks? Do some basic 'has the user used a crappy or faulty SD card, or using unreliable power (i.e our old favorite microUSB with a phone charger) at first boot, and basically say... if you continue past here, don't come near the forum or expect support? And have a reminder as part of the MOTD of this flawed configuration? If that essentially what you are proposing, I second that. But I'm not part of the inner circle, so my vote probably doesn't count for anything! And as far as information regarding SD card issues and power issues, I have started work on two posts which will probably be merged into one and used for an announcement at the top of the board pages as a 'basic troubleshooting' methodology. It'll be a few days before I finish it, and get it how I want it though. So you're not alone in thinking this needs fixing, and I am working on it. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
