The following instructions explain how to install the Raspbian image on a storage device from Windows using additional third-party software.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation recommends the use of Win32 Disk Imager (GPLv2.0).

  1. Download and install the latest version of Win32 Disk Imager.
  2. Plug the storage device into your computer, either directly, or using an adapter if required.
  3. Open Win32 Disk Imager and select the downloaded Raspbian Image File.

  5. Click Write. A message asking Are you sure you want to continue? will be displayed.

    Are you sure you want to continue?
  6. Click Yes. The Image Process will begin.

  8. Click OK. You may close the Win32 Disk Imager application.
    Additional Steps: Secure Shell (SSH)
    The following steps are required if you wish to enable Secure Shell (SSH) connections at first boot, or you are intending to use a headless configuration.

    1. Press Windows Windows 10 + X. The Quick Link menu will be displayed.
      Windows 10 Quick Link menu: Windows PowerShell
      Quick Link menu
    2. From the Quick Link menu, select Windows PowerShell. A Windows PowerShell window will be displayed.
    3. From the Windows PowerShell, type the drive letter of the storage device and press Enter:
      N:

      Replace N with the drive letter of your storage device. This will be the same drive letter you used with Win32 Disk Imager.

    4. Create an empty SSH flag file, using the following command:
      New-Item ssh

      You may use the ni alias instead of the New-Item command if you wish.

    5. Close the Windows PowerShell window, using the following command:
      exit
  9. Remove the storage device from your computer and plug it back it to your Raspberry Pi.
  10. Power on your Raspberry Pi, and assuming has gone well, Raspbian will boot from your storage device!

Next, install the latest Raspbian Updates.
