Blog - Raspberry Pi 3 NOOBS Raspbian Setup

New Out Of the Box Software (NOOBS) is recommended by The Raspberry Pi Foundation and sold pre-installed on an SD card that is recommended for use by many retailers.

We used the Offline and network install but there is also a NOOBS LITE Network install only. As of 6 August 2016, this is a 1024 MB zip file that will take some time to download.

# Once formatted, cd into the CD Card

# Download the the NOOBS Offline and network install image.

wget downloads.raspberrypi.org/NOOBS_latest

# Unzip the image.

unzip NOOBS_latest

# If the above command fails, then try the command below to catch other variations of filenames that might result from downloading the NOOBS archive image.

unzip NOOBS*

# Eject the CD card from your Mac

# Insert the SD card into the RaspBerry Pi 3
# Connect the RaspBerry Pi 3 HDMI port to a monitor or TV and connect the USB ports to keyboard and mouse in order to boot the NOOBS image.
# Then connect a power supply to the micro usb port Once HDMI, keyboard and mouse are connected.
