Jetson Nano 2G not booting

Got these from the grant program. We received 4 of them. Non will boot. There are other posts with the same issue and no mention of resolution. There is mention of using the jp460 image since it has a newer boot loader… That doesn’t work.
I connected the serial debug cable and I get the following log debug message. Interestingly the boot message is the same with SD card and no SD card. We’ve tried new SD cards, creating the SD from Windows and Linux with the same result. We are experienced creating SD cards for the Pi computer, so I don’t think its our methods, but rather a hardware problem.

The SD card models also have QSPI memory, which is on the Jetson itself. Most of the time when a new SD card model fails to boot it needs the Jetson itself to be flashed. Use an Ubuntu 18.04 host PC and flash it using JetPack/SDK Manager. See:

I can confirm using the SDK manger to install the system got the system booting. SDK manager will flash the boot loader , and install the OS drivers etc… on the SDcard from your ubuntu laptop connected to the nano via USB. Cool setup.

Once you do this resist doing an apt upgrade; this will break docker and you’ll have compatibility issues with the nvidia drivers.
