Install Ubuntu on RPi 4

Mon Feb 10, 2020 2:41 pm

Hello,

I followed the Ubuntu procedure to install the 18 LTS version. I prepared my SD card but once placed in my RPi 4 it does not kick ?!

I missed something in the installation procedure ??

Do you need an independent boot loader for this to work ?

Is it possible to install Ubuntu on UBS 3 external hard drive ??

Regards

I have tested the disk image of Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 LTS 64 bits and Ubuntu Server 19.10 64 bits, the writing to the SD card is done correctly, but with 18.04.3 when I plug the SD card in the RPi4, and turn it on, nothing is displayed, the screen remains black.

18.04.3 does not support the Raspberry Pi 4. The next point release of 18.04.4 will support the RPi 4 and is coming out this week. We're sorry for any confusion.
