  • @kemis The answer you linked was for NOOBS, not Raspbian, and NO LONGER WORKS

  • This question is just too broad. There are at least a couple of dozen available operating systems for the Pi, each of which will have different requirements for headless installations. If you can edit your question to specify a particular OS, and the steps you've already taken to try and get it set up, I'd be happy to reopen the question.

1 Answer 1


it depends on the operating system that you would like to install on the Raspberry pi, you have following options as far as I know, which you dont need SSH to install operating system:

  1. Windows 10 IOT : https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/iot

  2. Max2Play, Raspbian based operating system: https://www.max2play.com/en/

  3. Raspbian: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/installation/installing-images/

  • This is fine as it goes, but the overly-broad nature of the question makes this a fairly incomplete answer - there are a great many more than two options available for headless OS installations, including Raspbian. Given that Raspbian is likely to be the default OS of choice for the vast majority of Pi users I'd say it's a little disingenuous to leave it off the list here.
