Image won't work on a Pi Zero

What's the likely reason for this?
I'm trying to build this smart thermostat project
formatting link

I downloaded the image and put it in one of my Pi model B's and it
seems to work fine, but I really want to use a zero for the production
version, so I ordered one, but when it arrived and I tried it, there
was no response from the activity light at all.
Thinking it might be a hardware failure, and mindful that people have
been caught out by the lack of diagnostic lights on the zero, I tried
the latest NOOBS (PIXEL), and that boots OK.
The only thing I have tried is grafting the commandline.txt from NOOBS
onto the troublesome build, but that had no effect.

I notice that the Instructables author was using an RPi 3 so I wonder if his configuration (which is on the image you downloaded) is trying and failing to find some device it requires that isn't a standard part of the Pi Zero. Did you have the WiFi dongle plugged in when you tried to boot that image?
Its quite possible that, since the heater control is designed to run as a stand-alone box, it would try to initialise the wifi dongle as soon as it had booted Raspbian, it would hang if it can't find the dongle.
One way to find out what stopped it coming up as expected would be:
1)Boot the Zero off the Instructables image and note the time & date.
2)If/when it fails to boot, reboot using your NOOBS image.
3)If you're not familiar with less, read its manpage 4)Login to your Pi Zero as a normal user
5)Run the command: sudo less /var/log/messages
Use less and the time & date you recorded to find the log messages output during your attempt to boot into the Instructables image.
Look first at the last few messages to see if they report any errors, missing devices, etc. If there's nothing there, i.e it just hung, scan through all the stuff that was logged during that boot to see if any missing or failed items were reported earlier in the boot process.
If that doesn't help you to fix the problem, tells us what you found and/ or contact guliverrr and see what he suggests.

I've not looked at this image, however if it's an old one, then it may not boot on all Pi versions.
I'd put the image in the B that works, then run a full update on it -
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
That ought to get the latest kernel/bootloader that will then run over all Pi's.

Thanks Gordon, and I really should have thought of doing that myself, however, it appears that:
E: You don't have enough free space in /var/cache/apt/archives/.
How should I address this please?

Do you have access to another Linux system?
If you don't have access to another Linux system ================================================ I think your best bet in this case is to contact guliverrr, explain the problem and get him to send you an upgraded image. You'd be doing him a favour because I bet you won't be the only person who has this problem.
If you have access to another Linux system ========================================== You can use that to set up a bigger SD card and transfer the image to it from the SD card you installed it on.
- use cfdisk or one of the other partition managers to see the type and sizes of partitions in the image disk. - get an SD card of twice the capacity
- use the partition manager to put two partitions on it in the same order and type as those on your image file, but make them twice the size
- use dd to copy each image card partition to the corresponding one on the new SD card. This needs to be done on a system with two USB sockets and two card readers.
Now boot and upgrade the new card.

There are currently only 223 lines in "messages" so I don't need a filter. Each and every line carries the date stamp
Feb 13 12:52:27
Not sure of the significance of that, I thought in the absence of a RTC Linux defaulted to Jan 1 (1970) 00:00
This forensic approach is most interesting, are you saying that /var/log/messages resides in NV memory in the SOC itself and not on the SD card, or have I misunderstood?
It all seems to pertain to the current boot session. on the Model "B" with the wlan device atached (but ot boots OK without it).

No, /var/log/messages should be on the SD card containing the heating controller image that is/was in the Pi zero.
But, I missed a step or two. The following assumes that you have a USB micro SD-card reader, or a standard SD-card reader and a micro-SD card adapter, i.e. that you can use to access the controller image card with your Pi2.
What I should have said was: - take the controller image card out of the Pi zero - stick in into the USB card reader and plug that into the Pi 2. - boot the Pi 2 as usual. - mount the bigger partition on the controller image card if it doesn't auto-mount. - then cd into that partition and use less to read var/log/messages on it, looking for boot time errors and/or the last few lines of the boot report to see what the Pi zero was doing when it hung or crashed.

A 16GB thermometer? I don't know(!) Yes I could put Mint and gparted on a spare x86, in half-an-hour I was rather hoping I could use gparted to manipulate the existing partitions. Better still if I could do it on the pi.
It's late I'm going to bed.

Well...try and clear some space.
There is a way to get rid of old package sources, and many logfiles can be deleted.

sudo apt-get clean
might free up some space taken by previous upgrades - if any..
Other than that - not sure - I'm still running Raspbian on 4GB SD cards although they are getting a bit full now with the GUI installed, etc.

Sure, do it that way if you have enough unused space on the existing image card to expand at least the Linux filesystem partition.
Since you didn't say how big the card is and whether it had any spare space, I thought it was best to describe how to do the worst case plot which assumes the card is already full. I moved my system from a 4GB card to an 8GB one with an SD card reader plugged into my Pi 2B and using cfdisk to partition the new card and dd to copy the contents of the partitions. That 'just worked'.
So, how big are the existing partitions and how much spare space is there on the controller image card?

OK, I've got it going now, thanks to all for the help.
Gordon was correct of course about the need for the up-date/grade, but why didn't it work?
I was dubious about the 8GB SD not being big enough, as gparted on the x86 machine showed an EXT4 partition of 7.42GB with 4.52GB free.
Nevertheless, in desperation, I robbed the 16GB card out of my Android phone and tried to set that up, same issue, it clearly wasn't the free space in the EXT4.
Long story short, the problem was the mount point of var/cache
root@raspberrypi:~# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on rootfs 15G 2.8G 11G 21% / /dev/root 15G 2.8G 11G 21% / devtmpfs 215M 0 215M 0% /dev tmpfs 44M 272K 44M 1% /run tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock tmpfs 88M 0 88M 0% /run/shm /dev/mmcblk0p1 56M 9.8M 47M 18% /boot tmpfs 50M 35M 16M 70% /var/cache tmpfs 50M 0 50M 0% /var/tmp tmpfs 50M 124K 50M 1% /var/log tmpfs 100M 32K 100M 1% /tmp root@raspberrypi:~#
Not sure why anyone would think 50MB would be enough. I think it would be difficult to increase this ring fence retrospectively but some Googling later it seems the easiest way around it is to temporarily unmount /var/cache and remove, or comment out the corresponding entry in /etc/fstab, so it is effectivly mounted at root.
So at this moment I am repeating the process on a clean install on the 8GB card, and I can put the 16GB one back in my phone.
Now I did remember to back it up
didn't I?...

tmpfs are RAMdisks. They are not on the SD card but in RAM. If the apt-get upgrade is not too big usually 50MB is enough. If, as in your case, is not enough, you have the option to increase the siz e (google for it), or upgrade the packages in small steps
