First generation Raspberry Pi. Plug'n'Play with Rasp Pi 3?


#1

Hi all, I’m running PiAware on my first generation Raspberry Pi, but it seems to be struggling to keep up lately, so I was considering updating to the new 3rd generation Raspberry Pi (the one with built in WiFi). Is it a matter of plugging my SD card in to the new Pi and I’m done? Or do I need to start from scratch and go through the whole set up process?

Thanks.

It may run, if you are using Jessie. There needs to be a boot image for the RPI3 on the card.
It is simpler to just get the latest Piaware image. The later image has so many improvement.
I just checked and you appear to be running a 3.0.5 SD card image. That should swap over without an issue.

Thank you. I’ll give it a try. If I run in to issues, I’ll just re-image and go through the setup 8)

Thank you

Then again, there is the issue of SD Card (first generation) vs Micro SD Card (later generations.)

Nothing a large hammer can’t solve :smiley:
