First little Raspberry Pi Steps...
+
Below you can download the MinnowBoard design files:
* Ensure you have all the [[RPi Hardware Basic Setup#Typical_Hardware_You_Will_Need |equipment]] you need to go with your Raspberry Pi.
 
* Become familiar with the [[RPi Hardware Basic Setup#Connecting_Together | board layout and connect]] it ready for power up.
 
* If you have not been provided with a pre-setup SD card you will need to prepare one with your chosen [[RPi_Easy_SD_Card_Setup | Operating System distribution]]
 
* If you are not using a HDMI monitor you may need to set up the correct video mode by editing the [[RPiconfig]] text file on the SD-card.
 
* Note: On the Debian OS after you log in you need to type '''startx''' at the prompt to get a graphic desktop.
 
* Particularly after first boot its important to do a clean shutdown with the command '''sudo halt'''
