Newbie: Beagle-board's first time boot/hookup problem

Hi All,

I just got new Beagleboard (Original) Rev C5.

I have not inserted any SD card , and as mentioned default boot
sequence
in data-sheet, I am assuming that board should boot (default uboot)
from
in-build NAND (Plese correct me if i am mistaken) .

Rather then booting U-boot, I am getting below message constantly..
(I think board is resetting constantly)

  1. I have connected beagleboard to PC using RS232 cable below

  1. and powered beagleboard using OTG usb cable…

Sounds like the kernel you’ve got turns on too much stuff and consumes too much power. Try powering using a 5V adapter. See http://beagleboard.org/peripheral.
