  1. I plug it in and get a rainbow screen. No network presence. Yes I re-burned the image twice. Great video, where can get help? The NOOBs from raspberry generated a UI that was great…i just wanted the more universal ubuntu. Any ideas?

  2. Let's get your sd card storage back with Windows.

    1. Open command prompt
    2. type "diskpart"
    3.A new cmd window will open
    4.type "list disk"
    5."select disk 1"(My sd card)
    6."clean"
    7."create part primary"
    8.Now close.
    9.Head to Windows explorer
    10.format to fat32

  3. Thank You Sir! .. been trying to find a solid "desktop" style OS for my new pi3 since I found out first hand that the W10 iot isnt anything like W10.. (Im not even close to as smart as you).. definitely diggin your desktop background, as well as your case and that RGB G.Skill Ram you got… gunna use both of them in a build at the end of the year once I learn more about VEGA.. Thanks for all the info you mad genius…

  4. you say it can run as a desktop. you should of told people you can NOT run x86 or amd64 apps on the RPis so you can't run apps like google chrome and those types of apps
