Pi Zero time…

Well, when you load NOOBS Lite, you don’t have Ethernet to continue…and when you try to move the real NOOBS over back in Windows, your partition tables are all wacko…so follow this to unconfuze Windoze: http://www.howtogeek.com/170794/ask-htg-how-can-i-reclaim-the-full-capacity-of-an-sd-card/

More to follow, need to get a mouse or keyboard connected first.

Note to others, it uses an HDMI Mini (cable $7 at Walmart and the power micro USB cable goes to J1, furthest away from the HDMI connector. )

Another note, no LEDs turn on if there is not an SD Card in the slot!

AWESOME, we are editing this from the Pi Zero!

Note, when you load the full NOOB on the SDCARD, you can use an OTG USB cable with a keyboard connected to get Raspbian to install, but after it boots, no more OTG USB action UNTIL you put a powered USB hub inbetween. Not even a tiny dongle to make a RT-MWK01 (wireless keyboard and touchpad) to work.

But, once you have a power hub in the way, you can simply pop a Linksys WUSB54GSC in, and then you have WiFi too!

Here is the cpuinfo:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cat /proc/cpuinfo

And then for the ALWAYS the HARDEST part, what to do with this new gadget?!?

Maybe a hidden camera somewhere on a model railroad, or a “how full is the lake” sensor 10 km away on the ranch?
