DreamPi SD card

Post#1 » Thu May 23, 2019 12:15 pm

I own a MacBook and have no access to anyone that can help with a DreamPi image to my SD card. I have everything except a PC which seems to be the only way you can make this happen. I need help with anyone that can do this for me. I can mail you the card with return postage and the container to return it so I can join the DC online community! PLEASE help! I have been trying for months! DAR67

Etcher or Apple Pi Backer I believe can flash it for you with a Mac.

It has been close to two years now but I'm pretty confident I flashed the image to my card using my MacBook. I believe I used Apple Pi. The only personal computer I had at that time was a MacBook Air (~2012). My work laptop is a PC but I doubt I would have used it for a personal project.

nothing, just plug in your modem and wait for two lights to come on.
