Setting Up a New Raspberry Pi

Here are some quick steps to setting up a new Raspberry Pi:

  1. Format your SD card with MS-DOS (FAT)
    1. This is a critical step if you are on a Mac or if you have an SD card larger than 32GB.
  2. Download and extract the Noobs offline and network installer
  3. Copy the extracted files & folders to the SD card
  4. Boot your Pi with the SD card inserted
  5. Check “Raspian” (probably the only option), click Install, and click yes
  6. Click OK when prompted
