A10 lime not booting of SD Card
« on: May 16, 2014, 02:01:30 AM »
I wrote the 4 GB Image downloaded from the wiki to an SD-Card, which had been an SD card for A20.
I used Win32DiskImager to write it to the SD Card using a Logilink USB to SD-card writer.
I can see the FAT32 partition on windows. When I try to start the lime with this SD-card nothing really happens. Nothing to bee seen on HDMI screen, Blinking of EThernet interface stops after a second... that's it.
What am I doing wrong??
What can I do to find out what might be wrong??

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure how Win32DiskImager works (I don't have Windows), but if it does the same as commands like dd (so it writes the exact disc image, whole device bit-for-bit), the culprit may be the SD card itself. See, for example, a RPi page about SD card compatibility at http://elinux.org/RPi_SD_cards. Some cards will just work, some won't. Try another one. When I was trying my A13 MICRO for the very first time, I picked the only card which does not work with it (Murphy laws in action :-) ). And some card readers have compatibily issues too, the best ones are those from card manufacturers.

Good point, but the SD I used was an "original" Olimex SD which had been used for my A20, thus it should be working on the lime too I suppose.
I just tried a transcend SD with 16GB, same problem.
No signal on HDMI, first the ethernet shows a link and activity then after 5 to 10 seconds no other LED's are lit than the power LED.

Any more suggestions???

Thanks

Without the boot output from uart0 it's going to be hard to find the problem.
You really need a USB-TTL Usart converter to see what's going on.
Then you can also probably use boot commands.
5-10 seconds before dying might indicate that it's probably getting pretty far along in the boot process.

Hey there,

Test with these two images (I believe you have already tried with the first one, so you might skip that):

1. Debian: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-bAEPML8fwlZWMtZHZCNVNoYTQ/edit?usp=sharing
2. Android: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-bAEPML8fwlVy02LXYxMmlqUTg/edit?usp=sharing

If the problem persists with both the images it might be a hardware problem. In such case I recommend you to send an e-mail at support@olimex.com.

Best regards,

Hello,

the system is only booting with no ethernet connected and no HDMI connected.
Here's the log of the boot with ethernet connected and the original olimex power supply no HDMI:

I've booted with no ethernet connected, which worked. Then I connected the ethernet, and issued dhclient eth0 which was successfull. The system received a lease. Then I tried to connect to it using ssh. The system crashes reproducable during login.

I tried the android image you suggested, with ethernet connected it doesn't boot either:

What else can I do? Is the board defect or is this "normal" behaviour??

Thanks in advance

Re: A10 lime not booting of SD Card

Well... I figured out what was going wrong myself.  :o

The power supply I ordered from Olimex was to weak. I've now added some power to the board with an USB cable connected to the OTG USB port, now it is booting and working fine.
As it was an original powersupply from Olimex, I tested this close before sending the board back....

Thanks for your thoughts

You took the 6V instead of 12V power supply ?
Or is that the "chinese version" that is deficient ?
