Boot from SD card

How to burn a Raspberry Pi OS

1. Raspberry Pi OS Stretch download

Download Raspberry Pi OS from Raspberry Pi official website and select “with desktop and recommended software” version.

2. Etcher

Click to download Etcher here, and burn the *.img.xz file directly to your SD card with Etcher. Or unzip the *.img.xz file to a *.img file, then burn it to SD card with other image writing tools.
- Click the Plus icon to add the image you just download, the software will automatically select the SD card you plug.Then click Flash! to start burning. It will take about 10 minutes to finish.
- Exit the imager and eject the SD card. - After writing the image to the SD card, insert the SD card into raspberry PI. Use the USB adapter and usb-c interface to power it. Do not remove the SD card during the writing process. Raspberry PI will start from SD card.

Basic Configuration

Wireless connection and SSH

1. Create a file called "wpa_supplicant.conf" into the /boot folder, and copy the following code.

country=CN
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1

network={
ssid="WiFi-name"
psk="WiFi-password"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
priority=1
}

Note

The Wi-Fi name and password should be the same as your local Wi-Fi which your PC connected to(make sure your PC and Raspberry Pi are in the same LAN).

2. Create a blank file called "ssh" into the /boot folder.

3. Insert the SD Card with Raspberry Pi OS into the Raspberry Pi.

4. Connect the Raspberry Pi to the power source and power it up.

5. Open putty to connect PC to Raspberry Pi.

**2. ** Install VNC Viewer

Downloadr VNC Viewer

Open VNC Viewer and enter the IP address of Raspberry Pi. You can find the IP address by typing ++ifconfig++ command in the terminal of Raspberry Pi (or you can enter raspberrypi.local).

Note

If you use raspberrypi.local to login your Pi, you should make sure there is only one Raspberry Pi in use in your LAN.

Enter the default user name and password, and now you can enter the Raspberry Pi's remote desktop!

Success!
