Re: Wifi adapter that actually works out of the box

I have a bunch of cheapo WiFi dongles that I purchased from Amazon for about $1.50 each. It works out of the box (or pouch as the case may be). Its only 150Mbps but it is sufficient for my requirements. Used it for RPiZ, RPiA+, RPi1B (c) 2011, RPi1B+, RPi2B, and other SBCs without built in WiFi. Sam...

Re: Move Pi home from SD card to a HDD

Sad to say that the procedure might not work with a NOOBs installed system. The system I tested was using a raspbian stretch image. But may give it a try later on... As the HDD will be formatted after system transfer, it will be in EXT4 format (the format used by raspbian root partition), and may no...

Caution! The HDD to be used in this procedure will be erased. Back up your HDD first. 1. On the RPi3B+...
