not booting up

Post by bar1 »

Hi, not too sure what happened but my dietpi isn't booting up anymore, i just get a blank screen.
I was able to boot to resbian and mount the dietpi partitions, but other then fsck that didn't help i am not sure what to do....
i am running pi4, with 8GB of RAM.

looks like boot partition is corrupted and/or missing data.

@MichaIng

Did you do a kernel/APT upgrade recently?
It fails before even invoking the root partition, so something in in the boot/FAT partition seems to be missing or broken. Can you paste the whole content of it, via ls -al /mnt/sdb1 respectively the actual mount point.
