how to install pi-star image on a raspberry pi 3 B + ?
« on: May 17, 2019, 09:21:08 pm »
Using the same method I used for my pi zero W board did not

Format the card with SD Card Formatter
Use balena Etcher to transfer img file to SD card.
I get an error message in the process. Try again same error message.

I tried the latest and it would not boot.   I know the pi 3 B + is good
because it boots NOOBs fine
I tried a different program Power ISO" and that transfers the image and
I can see all the different filese on the card.  It only partial boots with text on the screen.

Thats is far as I could go.

Any help would be appreciated.


I then tried the beta version, still no luck

I tried it on a different computer and still no luck.
Then I tried the beta version and still no luck.

When I used balenEtcher I got a message to update.  My previous version was March 2019.
Still no luck with the latest version but this time the beta version
worked.  I am at the login promt.

I now have it working with a modem board from my previous hotspot.
I used the backed up config file and it came right up with my Nextion 3.2 inch display.
At the moment the display connects to the modem board but at another time
I want to connect it to the USB port of the pi 3B + to see if I can get it work there too.

Still don't know what the answer is.  With a pi 3B + will only the beta version work?
