Can't boot DietPi

Post by maxmullen » Wed Aug 07, 2019 5:54 pm

Hi, I bought a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ some days ago and was looking for a way to set up a Plex/Kodi + torrent media server. DietPi seemed awesome for the job but I can't seem to get it to work.

I followed all the paths from here and I get stuck on step 3, the login screen never appears, even after waiting for more than 10 minutes.

To make sure the Raspberry Pi or the SD card were fine I installed Raspbian and when I turned it on it worked perfectly so I don't know what the issue can be, am I doing something wrong??

Thanks! (and sorry for the english, not my first language)

@maxmullen
Many thanks for your report.

Did you change any config.txt, cmdline.txt or dietpi.txt settings before booting the Pi?

What are the last messages that you see on screen?
