1. do you use Gen1 or Gen2?
2. do you use the same power adapter for both boards?
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. 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?
Pablo -- I have a similar problem with my first Galileo 2. It worked for about 3 months, then died exactly the same way.

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?
Did you already open a ticket following the link that we shared? It sounds like it is the same issue as BMEJ.
