Just received the Vero 4k+ , Not booting to setup menu

Getting a number of failure messages -

Failed to start Login Services
Failed to start Setup OSMC machine ID
Failed to star lircd remote support
failed to start network time synchronization
Failed to start create volatile files and directories
failed to start mount disks with standby

Any ideas ?

Do you have a USB drive connected? If so, try without that. If it’s a spinning drive it may be needing to much power.

Did a ReInstall via SD card (USB would not work). Up and working now …Not as plug and play as I thought !!

Sorry to hear this.

Let us know if you run in to any further problems. This can sometimes occur if you power the device and move it to another display or unplug it during setup stages; but it’s harmless enough that you can just reinstall OSMC.

You can definitely use a USB to reinstall OSMC.

I was just about to post a thread with this same issue when I found this post. I’m having the exact same issue with a brand new Vero 4k+ I just got from the mailbox. The only things plugged in are the remote’s USB dongle and the power cord.

I’m going to try reinstalling with an SD Card, but I have to dig out my old Windows computer because my Linux one is not running CentOS, Debian, openSUSE, RHEL, or Ubuntu :frowning:

It looks like a network problem.

But what flavor of linux are you using?

I actually found an installer in the AUR that I used instead. It’s installing now.

I think it’s working now. I’m currently setting up the configuration options. I wonder if this might’ve been a bad batch of Veros or if the USPS held it a little too close to their magnetrons en route. :woman_shrugging:

You can just dd the image if you are using Linux

I’m doubtful, but you’ll definitely know after a reinstallation of OSMC.

Same here, brand new, no USB connected and no booting. I tried even without ethernet without success. I’ll try to reinstall tomorrow
