(This follows from the wireshark thread, but I've tried to move on)
I have a sparkling new rpi4B 4Gb. It booted raspbian (off the net)
happily, so I know that (a) the hardware works, and (b) I know how to
write the relevant sd card.
Yep, that's to be expected out of the box.
I've written the system
onto the sdcard, but all I get is the multicoloured screen that
indicates a problem. The green LED flickered irregularly on the way -
but hard to know which flickers are significant.
(I've used the same system in a pi3 - boots correctly)
Pi 3 utilizes a different bootloader.
Can anyone help me get this going please? I really want to boot from HD ultimately. Thanks.
The HD situation was complicated by my picking the duff one of the 3
spare disks I had around - it seems to initialize too slowly for the pi.
I notice the fbsd 10 seconds boot countdown runs a factor about 6 slow
though. I guess I can live with a slow boot (I'm intending, all being
well, to replace a power-hungry i386 that runs 24/7 for months on end)
