I received the starter kit towards the end of last week. I can’t seem to get the Pi to boot and after trying a number of things, I believe the SD card is at fault.
I’ve tried inserting the provided card into two different Pi Zero W’s and (via adapter) into an old Pi 2. Neither of the Pi’s gave an sign of life (though reading other forum posts incl. stickeys, suggest this is often due to an SD card issue.
I couldn’t get the SD card to show up on my home or work Windows 10 boxes (though there appears to be some issues with SD cards on Win10). I’ve also installed Ubuntu on my home box to try to access the card from there - all to no avail.
So my conclusion at this time is that the provided SD card is DOA, which is a shame, as besides this, I’ve been really impressed. If I was a genuine noob, I’d certainly have been put off by now. But I’m a dev, so understand despite all your great work, things can slip through.
How do I go about replacing the SD card?
