Pironman’s LED lights up but Raspberry Pi won’t boot when power button is pressed?

Please check the following conditions.

  1. Is there a separate power supply for the Raspberry Pi?

    Please do not do this, for the following reasons.

    Since the Raspberry Pi itself has no on/off control, it can only be powered on by powering up the Raspberry Pi. So Pironman will power off the Raspberry Pi after it is turned off, and power on the Raspberry Pi to start the Raspberry Pi. If you power on both the Raspberry Pi and Pironman, after shutdown, the Pironman has no way to start the Raspberry Pi by powering on the Raspberry Pi because the Raspberry Pi is externally plugged in and always powered on.

  2. Is the Micro SD card already inserted into the Pironman slot?

  3. Are there any systems installed on Micro SD card?

  4. The most important point to note is that the FFC cable of the GPIO Bridge is connected correctly?

How to copy Raspberry Pi OS Lite from Micro SD to SSD?

  1. Updating the Bootloader

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt full-upgrade
    sudo rpi-update
    sudo rpi-eeprom-update -d -a

    After setting, reboot to take effect.

  2. Use the following command to view the name of the storage device.

    sudo fdisk -l
  3. You will see a list of all the drives connected to your Raspberry Pi. In most cases, /dev/mmcxxx refers to your Micro SD card, and /dev/sda/ refers to your SSD.

  4. Now, use the following command to clone the system from the Micro SD card to the SATA M.2 SSD.


    Replace /dev/mmcblk0 with the name of your Micro SD card, and also modify /dev/sda to match the name of your SSD if it has a different name.

    sudo dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=/dev/sda bs=4M
  5. Pull out the Micro SD card, connect the M.2 SATA SSD and then power on the Pironman.
