Hi I’m brand new to this. I have a raspberry pi 2. Followed the directions found on this site. Downloaded the 3.0 image for pi 2. Extracted using winzip. Copied the image file to an 8gb micro sd card. Inserted it, plugged in the monitor, and keyboard and then plugged in the power supply and got nothing. Red and green lights display but don’t blink. There’s nothing on my monitor and nothing boots. Only thing I can think of is I used an old sd card from a cell phone but I reformatted it both with windows and software and it still won’t work…FloobMember05/17/2015 at 17:54Post count: 1629
Did you write it to the card using this method?FloobMember05/17/2015 at 18:31Post count: 1629
If you have a Pi2 and used this image:
it should be good.
Can you try a different SD card?
Or maybe a different HDMI cable/TV?grimbleParticipant05/17/2015 at 19:50Post count: 6
Tried 3 monitors and 3 hdmi cables. Tried a new sd card. Tried both 2.6 and 3.0 beta and still doesn’t boot. This is very frustrating. Still getting solid green and red lights with no flickering and no monitor activity.FloobMember05/17/2015 at 20:36Post count: 1629grimbleParticipant05/17/2015 at 20:38Post count: 6

I don’t think it’s the power supply. Using a 5 volt 2000 amp and the lights are displaying.
The sd cards used were a 8 gb class 4 Samsung and a 16 gb pny class 4. Both seemed to image properly with around 2 gb of data for the 3.0 beta image. Any other thoughts? It doesn’t seem to be booting at all.mavic19Participant05/20/2015 at 00:50Post count: 59
I ran into problems with the initial Lexmark microSD card i started with. Switched to a PNY 32GB class 10 card and it booted right up.
