Re: Can I move SD card from Pi3 to Pi4?

Post by Joulinar »

ok I will do some test tomorrow. It might be working to put a SD from a RPi4 into RPi3 but not the other way around

Thats what I found on raspberrypi website
Model 4 (B) green LED blinks regular when the PI doesn't detect the SD-card, and irregular when it boots, if the LED stays inactive (with power on) perhaps you need to repair the BOOT EEPROM code ... hp?t=58151

ahh yeah there are some steps needed in addition. I found this blog entry. ... nto-a-pi-4
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Thank you Joulinar.

At this point I think I would be better to just do a fresh install of Dietpi on the Pi4 and reinstall the 2 things I have running on the Pi3.

Thank you for your help though, very much appreciated.
