I need a way to make a RPi from scratch startup as a access point where user can connect from a PC or tablet or so. There from access a webpage where the user can setup as client WiFi connection. Anyone has such a solution?

Many WiFi devices without display works that way. For eg. sonos speaker .

I'd suggest starting here: Setting up a Raspberry Pi as an access point in a standalone network

The Raspberry Pi can be used as a wireless access point, running a standalone network.

and note no screen required:


Using a wireless device, search for networks. The network SSID you specified in the hostapd configuration should now be present, and it should be accessible with the specified password.

It worked for me.
