Ok guys and Girls
(This is a WINDOWS 7 instruction set.)
Over the last couple of days you must have realized that I got myself Raspberry PI. The thing is, I have never really got it to run as successfully as everybody indicated. Well, here is what I did, but fist, what you need:
- HW: A Raspberry PI (Obviously) and a Power Supply.
- HW: A SD card. Any type will do. (I will explain why, later.)
- HW: A Memory Stick.
- HW: A working Network Cable.
- SW: MiniTool Partition Wizard. (http://www.partitionwizard.com)
- SW: Raspberry Pi Openelec (http://openelec.tv)
Steps to do the installation using MiniTool Partition Wizard:
- Create a 100MB, FAT32, PRIMARY, ACTIVE, partition on your SD card. (label: System)
- Create a partition (I used the full size) , EXT4, PRIMARY partition on your Memory Stick. (label: Storage)
I then extracted the OpenElec software and ran the following commands from the directory created by the extracted files (In my setup, the SD card was mounted on G:\ :
copy target\KERNEL g:\kernel.img
copy target\SYSTEM g:\
copy 3rdparty\bootloader\*.* g:\
copy openelec.ico g:\
copy README.md g:\
copy cmdline.txt g:\
My cmdline.txt was changed to:
boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 disk=/dev/sda1 console=ttyAMA0,115200 kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 ssh
I then changed the overclock settings to:
I then LOCKED (Note, I LOCKED IT!!!) the SD card to stop corruptions. Rebooted …and BAM!!! What a nice piece of hardware. Fast, friendly and WOW, I can’t believe I did not move the /storage LONG ago…
