Raspbmc Installation


I've decided to try another Operating System on my Raspberry Pi, this is a version of XBMC specially designed for the Raspberry Pi.

XBMC is a open source media center operating system which gives quick and easy access to films, music and photos on a user interface designed for a TV rather than a computer monitor. It is also designed so it can be controlled by a remote control rather than a mouse and keyboard.

Raspbian First Boot


So Raspbian is installed on the SD card and the SD card is in the card slot, what's next?

Before booting the Raspberry Pi for the first time, make sure you've got a keyboard and mouse plugged in and connected the monitor to the HDMI port.

Once you are ready, connect the power via the micro USB socket and it will boot up.

Raspbian Installation


The Raspberry Pi doesn't come with a hard drive, instead it boots from an SD card. In order to install the operating system on the SD card you need to do what's known as flashing the SD card. To create a Raspbian SD card on a Windows system follow these instructions.
