The following section will explain how to setup a normal Raspberry Pi. It will not cover every detail but will give a good overview on the important steps.
For the Raspberry Pi we use the normal NOOBS Installer (actually version 1.3.9). You can download it from here:
Place the extracted files on a clean SD card, put it into the Raspberry and boot it up. Now you can install different Operating Systems with the installer.
We install the recommended Raspbian System.
After the installation finished and the Raspberry has rebooted it will show you the configuration (raspi-config). Here you can tweak some settings.
Reboot the system to activate the changes
From this point we will use SSH to connect to the Raspberry. You can disconnect any keyboard, mouse and display if you like.
We only need the Raspberry powered up and connected with a network cable.
