RoPieee Setup Problems

I’m having problems setting up a new HiFiBerry DAC+ Pro (Raspberry Pi 3B+ with HiFiBerry DAC+ Pro, Steel case, and 8 GB memory card). It’s the fifth one I’ve done this for, so I think I know the ropes.

I’ve downloaded the latest RoPieee software, 20180812-ropieee-ose-stable.bin.xz

I’ve used Etcher 1.4.4 to flash the memory card.

When I power up the RPi with a monitor attached, it starts running through the setup process, but then stops just after it puts the pictured garbage on the screem. The red LED is on, but not the green one.

Not sure if this is a software or hardware problem.

Any ideas as to what I should do?

Try reflashing the image and if it’s still failing try another SD card

Thanks @wizardofoz for the tip. A new SD card did the trick. My seventh RoPieee based unit is up and running.

I’ve got five using the HiFiBerry DAC+ Pro, plus two Audiophonics RaspTouch I-Sabre ES9028Q2M units with the touch screen.

Now I have to decide what I should use as the digital source on my main vintage audio system that I’m getting running again. Key components are a NAD 200 stereo amp plus Audiosphere 2 concrete speakers.
