raspberry pi noobs

Time needed: 15 minutes.

In this tutorial we’ll see how to install Raspberry Pi OS on your Raspberry Pi, starting from a micro-SD card preloaded with NOOBS. Once you have completely followed this tutorial, Raspberry Pi OS will be running on your Raspberry Pi and you will be ready to start working on it.

  1. Preparation

    Connect all components to your Raspberry Pi (end with the power supply):
    – USB keyboard
    – USB mouse
    – Insert the micro-SD card (already preloaded with NOOBS)
    – A monitor or TV (supporting HDMI video)
    – An ethernet cable (optional)

    When all components are connected:
    plug in the power supply to start (make sure it’s powerful enough : minimum 2500mA)
    If necessary, have a look at our tutorial “How to setup the hardware of your Raspberry Pi 3 B+” for more information.
    And if you miss one of the components, do not hesitate to visit our shop 😉.raspberry pi 4B connections

  2. Select your prefered OS (with a connection to the internet)

    To have an extended list of Operating Systems to choose from, you can connect your Pi to the internet with an ethernet cable or via your WiFi network. To establish a WiFi connection , click at the “Wifi networks” button to enter your credentials before continuing this tutorial.
    So, if you have an internet connection (optional), you can choose among more operating systems. You should see following window :raspberry pi noobs

  3. Select your prefered OS (without a connection to the internet)
