    1) Download image (Raspbian, Ubuntu, Kali, or WIN 10 IOT) from the Raspberry Pi website. https://www.raspberrypi.org/software/

    2) Download the compressed file to the PC, and unzip it to get the .img file.

    3) Connect the TF card to the PC, use SDFormatter.exe software to format the TF card.

    4) Open the Win32DiskImager.exe software, select the system image downloaded in step 2, and click‘Write’ to write the system image.

    5) After the image has finished writing, save, and quit the TF card safely.
