How to install raspbian stretch on raspberry pi



There are several (more than one) ways to install Raspbian on Raspberry PI, but there is one way that I like, because it is relatively easy, and often works to this day. 

I personally often use memory sd card size 16 GB, so if you have a smaller I suggest to use a minimum sd card size 8 GB, because my experience the size of the Raspbian file itself when extracted about 4GB.


environment to make this Raspbian OS using Microsoft Windows 7. lets directly we start to install Raspbian Strecth on Raspberry PI.

1. Reformat SD Card


To reformat the SD Card memory, I usually need a software, which I do not know why from the beginning I always use to install this Raspbian. software that I can derive from the following URL:


the name of the SDFormatter software.  You can download, then install and use to re-format SD Card, the option format I use is: QUICK FORMAT, FORMAT SIZE ADJUSTMENT OFF after that you can click the format and wait for it to finish.

2. Download / Download Raspbian Image



The Official Raspberry PI site provides an image for the Raspbian OS, along with links to download various OSs that can be installed on Raspberry PI


select Raspbian and the image to be downloaded is large which is about 1.7 GB

3. Write the Raspbian Image file to SD Card memory


to write this image file required Win32DiskImager software that you can download on the following sites:
