The first step in working with your Raspberry Pi is to set up your Micro SD. Not a complex process, but it’s good to have a straightforward approach to follow.
- Micro SD with a minimum of 8GB
- Micro SD card reader
- Flashing software.
Prepare Micro SD
- Download the Raspberri Pi Imager software from the link above
- The installation formats the card for you, so you only need to choose the OS, which will most likely be Raspberry Pi OS.
- Choose the Micro SD as the storage and start the process
Don’t remove the Micro SD card just yet. We will be configuring network access in the next step.
