I currently have a Pi2 (Model B Revision 2.0) running latest version of osmc (2016.04-2) and was hoping to just pop my sd card into my new pi3 as others have done but Im having a problem. (Im currently using a micro sd adapter)
on power on boot is stalling on the rainbow screen, get one flash of the green led and a static red.
is there something else I need to do first? have tried doing an update via my osmc, also tried apt-get update to ensure everything else is updated.
Can you plug the card into the old one and provide
You mean in the Raspberry? If that is the case you have a Pi1
Are you sure you have a Pi 2 ? The Pi 2 does not say revision 2.0 on the board - from memory it is revision 1.1 or 1.2.
Sounds like you have a Pi 1 B+. Please provide a photo of the bottom side of the board or a close up of the writing on the top side of the board to confirm.
apologies, I misread the table I was looking at to work out which version I had (I won it in a competition so wasn’t sure). it said to check the cpuinfo for the revision, its set to Revision : 000f
am I able to swap from a Pi 1 to 3 or do I need to do a fresh install?

You have a Pi1 and you will need to do a new install.
But you can save you settings with the backup tool and restore it after the new install
Ive just done a fresh install, backup/restore worked a charm
