I do not have a USB plug-and-play keyboard for my Raspberry Pi. I do have however a Bluetooth keyboard and a USB Bluetooth dongle. The problem is I have no way to configure my Raspberry Pi during installation.

I remember there was an option with Windows/Ubuntu where you were able to repackage the .iso image to add your own software/drivers to be installed during the OS installation.

What are my alternatives here?

  • Best way is to compile your own kernel. Its a bit tough but you get to choose exactly what you want and what you don't want. Making your Pi faster if you remove crap from the bootup.
