Downloads and installs
These steps are done on a PC. I am using the latest version of the Raspbian distribution, Jessie. If you don’t want to use systemd, the previous version Wheezy will work and is still available. Ubuntu Mate is another good choice as it has better programs pre-installed (Firefox). All are available from the Raspberry Pi download site.
Download the Raspbian Jessie image (1.2 GB) through the ZIP file or Torrent. Save it in your Downloads folder.
Click the green Download box to download the Win32DiskImager. Save it in your Downloads folder.
Double-click the Win32DiskImager install from the Downloads folder.
Hate these things. Uncheck Always ask before opening this file.
If you’re running as a standard Windows user, you will need the admin password.
Select I agree.
If you want a desktop icon, check Create a desktop icon.
Installation will begin.
Uncheck View README.txt.
If you’re running as a standard Windows user, you will see this error. Click OK and start Win32DiskImager from the Start Menu -> Image Writer -> Win32DiskImager. You will need the admin password.
