Hello Everyone, in this video, I will be going over the necessary steps for installing Raspbian on your Raspberry Pi.

Before we begin the tutorial, I'd like to cover what we'll be accomplishing within this video. You'll be learning how to Download the Raspbian ISO, Write the ISO to the SD card, installing and Configuring Raspbian, let's begin.

We can first start by opening a web browser and navigating to Raspberry Pi's download website.
In this video, I'm downloading the latest version of Raspbian. Go ahead and select ZIP download and wait for the file to finish downloading.

Once the file has finished downloading, extract the file. In this video, I'm extracting the ISO to my Downloads folder.

Once the file has finished extracting, load up your image burning software. In this video, I'm using BlenaEtcher, and I will leave a download link in the description for the software. Other software like Rufus is also fine.

With Blena, you can drag the Iso file into the software, and it will nest itself in there. You can choose the location you want to burn the ISO to, and then click flash.

Now we wait for the flashing and validation of the file, and once this is done, we're good to go.
Now, insert your SD card and all necessary cables to your Pi. This video will show you a normal initial boot-up process.

Your screen may flash, and different screens will arise, the Pi may restart. This is normal
Once the Pi has finished booting, you'll be prompted with a welcome screen.

When you advance, you'll be prompted with a screen to configure your location and language; do that accordingly.

The next screen will allow you to configure your password, generate a secure but rememberable password.

If your screen is displaying black bars, select the checkbook within the window to get rid of them.
For the software update screen, I'll be showing you how to do this through a terminal window so we can skip this for now.

And finally, restart your Pi.

Once you Pi has finished restarting, go ahead and open up a terminal window.

The first command we'll do will be shown on the screen: Sudo apt-get update.

Sudo will run the command as the Super User, apt-get installs, upgrades, and uninstalls packages, and the update makes sure your system is up to date.

These processes may take a while, so please be patient.

The next command, Sudo apt-get upgrade -y; will list and say yes to packages pending install.

The third command, Sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y; this will make sure file dependencies are up to date and will also perform the same functionality as an apt-get upgrade.

And the last command, Sudo apt-get autoremove -y; will remove packages that were automatically installed to satisfy dependencies.

After this is done, you are free to start whatever project for your Pi.
