Orange Pi PC2 doesn't boot


Recommended Posts

Hi! I have some troubles with my OPI.

I was install Armbian on the microSd (black SanDisk 16gb class 10) with Rufus. After insert card into OPI and connect HDMI and power cable on screen i have next:

U-Boot 2017.09-armbian (Now 20 2017 - 02:47:53 +0100) Allwinner Technology

After another some "BooTP broadcast " around 10 - 15 they print:

Retry time exceeded: starting again
missing enviroment variable: pxeuuid
missing enviroment variable: bootfile

and some errors related  to 'serverip' not set, print config not found and start again.

I try to install another OS (like Ubuntu, Debian desktop and server version) but they give me purple screen.

Can someone help me?

Images shall only be written with Etcher on all platforms since unlike other tools Etcher validates burning results saving you from corrupted SD card contents.


I try Win32DiskImager, Rufus, Etcher, try format flash with Standard windows formatter, SD Formatter. All try have same results. BTW I can access to board with SSH, but can't login(wrong password).

Unfortunately Etcher does not validate the write on Linux. See this issue

Also try 

sudo sync

before pulling out the card.

Besides SDcard and power supply issues there could be a chance that the board itself is defective. It is a cheap chinese stuff, remember?

and of which type/manufacturer/size was the bad card? ;)

Black sdhc SanDisk 16gb class 10. Maybe card are not bad. The fact is that i don't have normal sdhc card reader (micro sd to usb), in order to i use old Toshiba laptop. Maybe problem in it. I waited about two hours for the laptop to write the files. 

But, second time i use SP 2gb micro sd and all was be fine and lasted about 30 min.

I buy external 3.0 usb card reader, and try with them again. And if i don't forget i write here results of this testing.
