Install an image on your Raspberry Pi 2 [Full Guide]


It was a moment I hesitated, and although I have no specific ideas about what I’ll do, I decided to test it Raspberry Pi . Since it’s been a while since the first version was released, I went directly to the V2 corresponding to the following model: Raspberry Pi 2 – Model B with 1 GB of memory ; So advertised as 6 times faster than the first .

Personally, I bought a full pack on Amazon which provided me all the different cables and accessories as well as a box for Raspberry. . You are free to buy everything separately to be more specific in the cables or SD card chosen by example

Specifically, it looks like this:


While still in the discovery phase, the next articles should be devoted to this new gadget! 😉

Today, I start simple. You just got your new toy, so you must now use Micro SD card adapter to be able to load an operating system image . These may include Windows IoT or Raspbian (found in fact to be a Debian-specific version for Raspberry Pi)

To download images, please visit the following links:.

once your downloaded image file, unzip it (if necessary). In the case of Windows IoT , the file is already in ISO format while Raspbian must be unzipped via WinRAR or 7-Zip. Depending on your choice, you should get the following files:


In my case, I will choose the Debian version and therefore the file 2015-09-24-Raspbian-jessie.img . Now we have to burn / copy the image on our SD card. For this, please have your Micro SD card adapter and connect to your PC

You will need the following software:. Win32 Disk Imager . This is available at the following address: . Install it and start it (there is no complexity).

Look now at what letter your SD card is mounted and start burning the image.



After a few minutes, your OS is available on the Micro SD card. It remains only to remove it from the adapter and boot from the Raspberry Pi to check that it works

You should see the following screen:


Your Raspberry Pi is ready. We’ll see in the next article how to connect to it from the command line . 🙂
