Raspberry Pi getting started guide
 
Required Hardware
 
Hardware Setup
  1. Insert your preloaded SD Card into the Raspberry Pi
  2. Plug the USB keyboard and mouse into the Raspberry Pi
  3. Plug in the network cable into the Raspberry Pi and router/hub.
  4. Plug the HDMI cable into the Raspberry Pi and TV / Monitor.
  5. Ensure the TV / Monitor is turned on.
  6. Plug the power supply into the Raspberry Pi micro USB socket.
  7. Plug the power supply into the mains socket and turn on.
  8. The Raspberry Pi will now boot.

It is recommended that you plug the power supply in to the mains supply last.


 
NOOBS Setup

All our cards are pre installed with NOOBS (NEW OUT OF BOX SOFTWARE) for the Raspberry Pi.

On first boot, this presents you with a choice of operating systems to install, including

  • Raspbian The recommended OS for the Pi
  • RaspBMC Media centre software optimized for the Pi
  • Pidora Fedora remix optimized for the Pi
  • OpenELEC Media centre software
  • RiscOS Good for users to experiment and tinker.
  • ArchLinux Simple and powerful for competent Linux users

NOOBS

with this choice it means you can boot the Pi with a regular operating system like Raspbian, or with a media-centre specific OS like RaspBMC(XBMC) or OpenELEC (XBMC).

When you have installed your chosen operating system, your Pi will boot as normal.

Once you have installed an operating system, you can return to the NOOBS interface by holding down shift during boot; this allows you to switch to a different operating system, or overwrite a corrupted card with a fresh install. WARNING THIS WILL OVERWRITE YOUR DATA
