This is my notes on how I'm installing Rasbian on a 16GB SD card.
- Download Rasbian from this link: Rasbian.
- UnZip the file.
- Check which drive it is. On my computer it is usually /dev/sde. Use the command:
sudo fdisk -l
- Then I use the command:
sudo dd bs=4M if=2018-04-18-rasbian-stretch-lite.img of=/dev/sde status=progress conv=fsync
Then you'll see some progress. Be patient. It will eventually be finished.
Sometimes I need to check that the SD card only holds one partition. For that I use the application gnome-disks, and look for my SD card.
