I just installed a fresh SD Card with Noobs 2.3, changed to silentinstall in recovery.cmdline and did all the other steps in Installing Raspbian from NOOBS without display but now it doesn't work. The tutorial uses an earlier version of noobs so there are probably some differences, the only question is what those are..?

I can ping the rPi and can se that it obtains an IP from the router but I can't ssh to it.

ssh -v [email protected]
OpenSSH_7.3p1, LibreSSL 2.4.1
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 20: Applying options for *
debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 56: Applying options for *

  • This is no longer possible. See raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/a/61949/8697

    @SteveRobillard the question may be a duplicate, but the answers do not address NOOBS. The ssh workaround does NOT (currently) work with NOOBS.

  • @Milliways so you're saying that all I need to do is putting a fresh NOOBS installation on the SD card and add an empty file on root level called "ssh"? Seems too simple :)

  • @millways you are correct. I forgot that noobs is the red headed step child. Commented Mar 10, 2017 at 16:09
  • @Joel No! You cannot setup NOOBS without a screen and keyboard. (Well strictly you can, but if it is so complex, it defeats the purpose.) You can use a serial terminal, as an alternative.
