    Did you skip any steps? and it sounds like you have a9lh installed. place the required files for booting a9lh on to your sd card and see if it boots then.

    I'm sorry, i'm using a New 3DS and i was on the step that says "Press (Select) to Full Install" and the otp wasn't in the folder. My 3DS is also from Europe if you haven't guessed.

    Take out your sd card and try to turn on the 3ds without it. What happens?

    So with no micro sd does the console boot?
    also screenshots of contents a9lh folder, files9 folder and root of microsd would be helpful.

    The console doesn't boot with the MicroSD card inserted. After it boots, then i insert the MicroSD card in the New 3DS. Here is a screenshot: cfwScreenshot.png

    Can you run chkdsk on the card?

    From an Administrator command prompt, run the following: CHKDSK /F X:
    (replace X: with the drive letter)

    It should only have

    All of the firm files (firm0.bin etc)
    All of the payload files
    And secret_sector.bin

    All of the others aren't needed

    Yea.You should instantly go to the Luma config which means you installed a9lh correctly.
