Dietpi not booting on Raspberry 3 Model B V1.2

Post by Walter »

Hello Community,
I own a Raspberry 3 Model B V1.2 and try to get "DietPi_v109_RPi-(Jessie)" to boot on it.
I used several SD's an old 1GB card class <=4,
and San Disk 16GB HC, SanDisk 16GB HC1, but the Raspberry will not boot.
If I use Raspian-images on the same cards, everything works fine.

Using the dietpi image on a Raspberry 2 Model V1.1 is sucessful, the machine boots.

Has someone an idea what to do ? Could someone confirm this behaviour on
Raspberry 3 Model B V1.2?

Thanks in advance Walter

Hi Walter,

v109 is a very outdated image.

Can you please try:
- Downloading the most recent DietPi image: http://dietpi.com/downloads/images/Diet ... Jessie).7z
- Write it to SD card and power on

Let me know the results.
If its still failing to boot, can you please try writing the official Raspbian Lite image? This will help us determine if this is a DietPi specific issue or a possible hardware failure.

Hello Fourdee,
thanks for the help, the problem was
the most recent DietPi image
as the downloads (zip) is not clearly named they're named DietPi_RPi-arm6-(Jessie), I didn't use the most recent, I used the old v109 (even that I thought I'd write the new one). After writing the actual image everything works as supposed.
