NOOBS v1.3.2 installation Process Snapshots


This page shows the full process using Linux tools to prepare the SDHC card and transfer the NOOBS files etc. It is an updated version of that for NOOBS v1.2.1. Snapshots of XP methods of SDHC Card Preparation, common to all versions of NOOBS, can be found on the XP-based NOOBS v1.2.1 installation preparation page. Similar snapshots of "direct installation" of a Raspbian Wheezy image (*.img file) can be found in the Raspbian Wheezy IMaGe file Installation page. Following an update (of mainly the accompanying O.S. images) a few snapshots of NOOBS v1.3.3 installation are here1.

Monitor Photographs of Install in progress

The photographs shown here are for an HDMI monitor. Whilst NOOBS 1.3.2 can be installed using composite video (via the yellow RCA socket) connected to the AV or SCART (via an adapter) inputs of an older TV this is a "little tricky" hence screenshots for that method are shown here.
