As a musician and electronics fan, I decided to give Zynthian a try.
I followed the steps on the zynthian wiki. Prepared a SD card with Etcher with image
2020-09-05-zynthianos-buster-lite-armhf-1.0.0 which should be fine.
My Raspi is a 3B with Hifiberry as soundcard, I don’t have the Zynthian hardware yet.
My question; is it necessary to have the Zynthian hardware to install a Zynthian image?
When I start the fresh image, I see on my hdmi monitor that a lot of stuff is being installed for a couple of minutes. Than the screen goes black, after some time a reboot seems to happen, with more stuff being installed as it seems. After this, the screen goes black again, but after about 20 seconds, a screen appears for 1 second with install data and "zynthian login: " at the bottom. This looks like some sort of faulty boot loop. There is no way to stop this and finish the installation.
Please your help so I can go on with this amazing project. Thanks in advance
