Unable to boot POSBOX image installation on the Raspberry Pi 3

Hi all,

We are trying to boot POSBOX v13 or v12 on the Raspberry PI 3, so we can print receipt tickets originating from the Odoo POS application which runs on a separate 64-bit Ubuntu server.  Receipt printer is connected through USB.


What we did:

1) download latest posbox image from: http://nightly.odoo.com/trunk/posbox/

2) unzip the downloaded image on windows

3) format the SD card using diskpart

4) use Win32DiskImager to write the img to an 8 GB SD card

5) ensure the printer is powered on, and connected to the RPI 3

6) insert the SD card in the RPI 3 and power on the RPI 3


What happened?

1) The RPI 3 does not boot. 


Testing alternatives:

1) When using images like for example Noobs, Raspbian the RPI 3 worked like a charm on all the different SD cards.


Questions:

1) Can POSBOX be installed or run on a RPI 3?  

2) Is it because of 32bit or 64bit compatibility, As the older models were 32bit or the processors ARM are different from the       older models?

Version posbox v14 is available: http://nightly.odoo.com/trunk/posbox/posbox_image_v14.zip

May I know what is the default login for the posbox v14?

As I am unable to login withe the default 

username: pi

Please advise. Thank you.

Best Regards,
Russell

Did you try the wireless on the v14. As I go to the wireless setting there are no SSID detected at all.

I cannot use the UI to connect wifi (I dont know why, maybe the image doesnot support UI). I tried this one: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/wireless/wireless-cli.md and run this command after finishing the configuration: sudo /sbin/wpa_supplicant -P /var/run/wpa_supplicant.wlan0.pid -i wlan0 \ -D nl80211,wext -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf Everything is OK. BTW, when I reboot RPI , it also reset the configuration in the wpa_supplicant.conf. I have tried to find another way. Can you try and give me your feedback ?

I have tried the way you suggest but it says:

wlan    Interface doesn't support scanning.

So i went to the UI page for the posbox ipaddress is displays an SSID. I have attached the screenshots

Found another way but its not a POSBOX image.

We will try this on the Pi 3 and update here. Anybody else want to try here is the link below:

Hope to get more replies and point of view. As I think I'm not the only 1 trying to implement a POS system on the latest raspberry Pi 3. As older model especially the raspberry Pi 1 B+ was working. Unfortunately that model is not available in production or it is end of life.
