I've been working on a project involving two galileos. One randomly shutdown one day and wouldn't power back on at all (no lights). So i moved the project to the other galileo(which had it's own SD card).
Out of curiousity, I wanted to put the old SD (from the broken galileo) into my other one so that I wouldn't have to reinstall every library/program that I had. Well, I did that, and somehow this SD card managed to brick that galileo as well. No lights, no power nothing..
Any tips to get these back on? It seems odd that the SD card could somehow kill the power entirely on both of these Galileos.
Both are gen2 and have their own power supplies that came with them as kits.
It appears the SD somehow corrupted the firmware to not booting or leds to light up.
This seems like a warranty case. Could you please open a ticket following the next link? https://customercare.intel.com/?lang=en-US https://customercare.intel.com/?lang=en-US. We will continue with the support from there, we want to determine if the boards are indeed damaged. It seems odd to me that there's not LED activity at all.
yes. Neither Galileo will power on. Tried both power supplies on each Galileo with and without SD cards and no lights come on at all!
I have one Galileo 2 bricked in the same way. I was suspecting it to have burned out, since it runs very hot and I put a Grove shield on it. I was thinking about checking the capacitor or sending it in, if that is an option. I would actually like to experiment with a cluster of Galileo2s, I quite like it and since I have had to invest a lot in Linux assets -- I only lack four Galileo2s to try.
If these boards are burning out, that is definitely a no-go on investing that much money in them. Maybe a fan shield?

I'm curious, what do you plan to do with a cluster of Galileos?
At first, cooperative data collection and analysis. I think that this type of microcontroller is good for vehicles that collect data, but the process of creating a Linux cluster starts off with typical parallel processing tasks, not autonomous and cooperative activities.
Oh, and the SETI data processing -- benchmarks of traditional algorithms...etc.
How about a space probe that consisted of Galileo 2?
