Is it possible to install Raspbian (without the Recommended software) from NOOBS?

Last time I chose Raspbian from NOOBS installation menu it also included the recommended software (Mathematica, Minecraft etc) - which I don't want.

The reason I want to use NOOBS is I want a dual-boot system with Recalbox.

  • Does it have to be installed through NOOBS?

Forget NOOBS use PINN this has a much wider choice of OS - you can install any of the 3 versions of Raspbian.

Each OS has to be downloaded from the web, so PINN doesn't waste the 1.3GB that NOOBS does.
