Raspberry Pi 2A documentation unclear


The Raspberry Pi 2 A requires the Raspberry Pi 1 image to run. If this could be clarified in the documentation so that users like me who want to repurpose an old Pi 2A don’t spend a good couple of hours debugging this problem.

Pictures of my board for clarity:


Hi Lee. Looking at what is printed on your PCB, I see your board is a Raspberry Pi 1. why do you say it is a Raspberry Pi 2?


hides I feel really silly now. I could have sworn when I looked it up it had all the markings of a Pi2. Thanks for being a second opinion


:slight_smile: no problem
