I've just done a fresh install on Raspberry Pi Zero W. I wish to run headerless (I don't have a micro USB keyboard or adapter, nor a mini HDMI cable). I've done this numerous times on the "full fat" Raspberry Pi.
- installed the OS to the SD card
- created an empty ssh file on the root
- created a wpa_supplicant.conf containing the appropriate details including encrypted WiFi password
- waited the commensurate time for it to do its funky thang on first boot.
It has acquired an IP address from my DHCP server, but when I SSH to it, I'm told Please note that SSH may not work until a valid user has been set up. True to form, the default username and password yield up Access denied. According to a number of online guides, VNC should work out of the box, but that doesn't work either.
How do I get SSH'd in, please?
EDIT I found a mini HMDI cable. The screen is stuck at a "Enter new username" prompt. So, I Googled that. It would seem that (possibly as off about April 2022) there aren't any users created yet. Including the former default.
I still have the problem, though: Am I going to require a micro adapter for a keyboard?
