Gnome won't load and boot on Rock64

Hi folks, I’ve got a Rock64 (From Pine) Ver 2. I’ve tried many of the OS’s that the Pine forum points to, and fortunately came across Manjaro. I wanted to try all the flavors available for the Rock64 to see which suited my needs most. All but one loaded and ran quite well except for the Gnome version. it is identified in the list of OS’s as Manjaro-ARM-gnome-rock64-21.10 .img.xz. I am loading from a mSD card; when the system starts, the Manjaro logo comes up on the screen, and the “wait wheel” spins, and that’s it. I let it sit one session for almost an hour. Any suggestions?
