Outside the Box

The DVD enclosed with this issue comes with a collection of some of the best and most popular Raspberry Pi distributions. To install a distribution from the NOOBS installation manager, format an SD card of at least 8MB with an SD card formatter (Windows and Mac) [8] and drag the files inside the uncompressed NOOBS folder to the SD card. For more information, and for instructions to prepare an SD card on Linux, check out the instructions on the Raspberry Pi website [10]. Finally, unmount the SD card, insert it into the Raspberry Pi, and reboot.

In the NOOBS boot menu, select the operating systems you want to install. To try different systems later, hold down the Shift key at the Raspberry splash screen to bring back the NOOBS boot menu. Many of the articles in this issue assume you are running Raspbian "wheezy."
