    constant rebooting on original pi

    I am trying to put FreeBSD 11.4 or 12.1 on my RasPi original and after I power it on it goes through the boot process but says it can't find a device to write too. I have an 8GB SD card in there. If I can get a video of it I will post. But wanted to see if anyone had experienced this as well.
