The microSD card on my Raspberry Pi 3 got damaged on Open Day last May. So I had to set it up all over again. The first time was very exciting but this time it was really boring. It took up most of the dojo time and I almost started my homework but I was afraid I might have to press a button or something so I waited. The Raspberry Pi makers should make it play music or have a game on the screen for you to play while you are waiting. It was all worth it when it finished.
NOOBS means New Out Of Box Software. Our mentor had it downloaded for us but he showed us how to get on the Raspberry Pi Foundation website https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/noobs/ Make sure you pick the full version and not the LITE one.
First of all I had to format the microSD card in the card reader. To do that I had to use a SD card adapter card to make it fit in the slot. You have to use a special app called SD card Formatter https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4 to make sure it works.
