Writing Raspberry Pi4 Image To SD Card

  1. The Raspberry Pi4 image you downloaded needs to be extracted and written onto an SD card.
#Extract the compressed image file
tar -xzvf MESHdesk-Pi4-11-NOV-21-0.img.tar.gz
#This will create the file
  1. Any SD card bigger than 8G will work.
  2. We use Raspberry Pi Imager to write the image for us onto the SD card.

  • Once the writing process is done you can insert the SD card into the Raspberry Pi4 and power it up.
  • There is a dedicated Wiki page on the first time configuration of the Raspberry Pi4 after boot up.
