If you want to know more about the new Raspberry Pi Network setup functionality, Pi enthusiast Jeff Geerling released a new video tutorial on how you can use Raspberry Pi mini PC is equipped with the EEPROM chip. Or Electrically erasable programmable read-only memory to use the new feature which is currently in beta testing
The function allows you to instantly configure your new Raspberry pie mini PC by downloading everything from the Internet using Ethernet computers through your home network. If you want to try the network installer, you must first install a beta version of the bootloader. However, the Foundation plans to deploy future Raspberry Pi computers already installed with the bootloader so that this step is no longer necessary.
“The easiest way to update the bootloader on your Raspberry Pi 4 or 400 is to use the Raspberry Pi Imager, running on your Raspberry Pi or another computer, to copy the required software to an SD card. You You’ll need a spare blank SD card and, if you’re using a Raspberry Pi or other computer that doesn’t have an SD card slot, a USB to SD card dongle.
How to Use Network Install with Your Pi
Earlier this month, the official Raspberry Pi Foundation development team asked for help testing the new network install feature supported by a Raspberry Pi 4 or Raspberry Pi 400.
“There is now a beta version of the Raspberry Pi bootloader that implements network install, and we would like your help testing it. The new network install feature can be used to start the Raspberry Pi Imager application directly on a Raspberry Pi 4 or a Raspberry Pi 400, by downloading it from the internet using an Ethernet cable.The Raspberry Pi Imager application, which will run in memory on your Raspberry Pi, can then be used to flash the system operating on a blank SD card or USB drive as usual.
