Installation Of Raspberrypi Operating System( NOOBS & Wheezy-pi)
The SD card contains the Raspberry Pi’s operating system (the OS is the software that makes it work, like Windows on a PC or OSX on a Mac). This is very different from most computers and it is what many people find the most daunting part of setting up their Raspberry Pi.
The following instructions are for Windows users. Linux and Mac users can find instructions at www.raspberrypi.org/downloads
- Download the Raspberry Pi operating system The recommended OS is called Raspbian.Downloadit here: http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/images/raspbian/2012-12-16-wheezy-raspbian/2012-12-16-wheezy-raspbian.zip
- Unzip the file that you just downloaded
- a) Right click on the file and choose “Extract all”.
- b) Follow the instructions—you will end up with a file ending in .img This .img file can only be written to your SD card by special disk imaging software, so…
- Download the Win32DiskImager software
- a) Download win32diskimager-binary.zip (currently version 0.6) from: https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+download
- b) Unzip it in the same way you did the Raspbian .zip file c) You now have a new folder called win32diskimager-binary You are now ready to write the Raspbian image to your SD card.
- Writing Raspbian to the SD card
- a) Plug your SD card into your PC
- b) In the folder you made in step 3(b), run the file named Win32DiskImager.exe (in Windows Vista, 7 and 8 we recommend that you right-click this file and choose “Run as administrator”). You will see something like this:
- c) If the SD card (Device) you are using isn’t found automatically then click on the drop down box and select it Preparing your SD card for the Raspberry Pi 3
- d) In the Image File box, choose the Raspbian .img file that you downloaded
- e) Click Write
- f) After a few minutes you will have an SD card that you can use in your Raspberry Pi
- Booting your Raspberry Pi for the first time
- a) Follow the Quick start guide
- b) On first boot you will come to the Raspi-config window
- c) Change settings such as timezone and locale if you want
- d) Finally, select the second choice: expand_rootfs and say ‘yes’ to a reboot
- e) The Raspberry Pi will reboot and you will see raspberrypi login:
- f) Type: pi
- g) You will be asked for your Password
- h) Type: raspberry
- i) You will then see the prompt: pi@raspberry ~ $
- j) Start the desktop by typing: startx
- k) You will find yourself in a familiar-but-different desktop environment.
- l) Experiment, explore and have fun!
2.Install NOOBS on the Raspberry Pi
This project is pretty simple. Besides your Raspberry Pi and essential peripherals, here’s all you’ll need:
- A computer with an SD card slot
- An SD or microSD card of at least 8 GB
Step 1: Download NOOBS and extract it
You’re going to use your computer to put NOOBS on an SD card – so step one is to get NOOBS onto your computer!
The NOOBS download page will let you choose between NOOBS and “NOOBS Lite.” NOOBS includes a full version of Raspbian, so you can install that particular operating system without using the internet at all. With NOOBS Lite, on the other hand, you’ll need a network connection to install any of the operating systems NOOBS makes available – even Raspbian.
Go ahead and choose whichever version you would like. NOOBS will download as a .zip file, so before you do anything else, go ahead and extract it.
Step 2: Format an SD card
Now you’re going to want to go ahead and stick your SD card into the corresponding slot on your computer. You’re going to want to format it as FAT. There are a few ways to do this:
On Mac or Windows, use the SD Association’s Formatting Tool (Mac users can also just use the disk utility). Make sure the “Format size adjustment” option is set to “on.” Then erase it in FAT (or MS-DOS) format.
Step 3: Put the NOOBS files on the SD card
Now, just drag and drop the NOOBS files into your newly formatted SD card. You want the files only, so if your .zip extracted to a folder, open that folder up and select only the stuff inside of it.
Step 4: Put your SD card into your Raspberry Pi and boot it up
- Once you have NOOBS on your SD card, using it is incredibly easy. Just put the SD card into your Raspberry Pi
- This is the step in which that happens. After booting to NOOBS, you’ll be greeted with a menu that will let you choose which operating system you’d like to install on your Pi.
- Your menu may look a little bit different than the one in the screenshot above, because NOOBS ingeniously adapts to your generation and model of Raspberry Pi.
- just click on “Install” and sit back. From now on, your Pi will boot directly to that operating system.
