Assemble the Pi

  • If not already installed, insert the micro SD card so that it clicks into place.
  • Connect the mouse to one of the USB ports.
  • Connect an HDMI screen using one of the micro HDMI ports and switch it on.
  • Connect the power and press the power button/F10 on the keyboard.

Configure the Pi.

  • Your Raspberry Pi will boot and display the desktop.
  • The first time you start up your Raspberry Pi, the Welcome to Raspberry Pi application will pop-up, guiding you through the initial setup to get your screen and internet connection up and running.
  • You’ll be asked to check for software updates, it’s good practice to always keep it up to date so go ahead and install any that come up. This might take a little while.

You’re all set to start using your Raspberry Pi!
