Raspbian Buster with desktop
then get a 32gb card I got these for my pi4's https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073J ... UTF8&psc=1
format them with sdformater
then open etcher locate the 2019-06-20-raspbian-buster.img then select the drive with the fresh card and then select flash
insert that card into your new pi4 then you should be all set
connect monitor to hdmi0
use a 5v 2.5am or higher power supply and connect your usb keybord mouse
it should work , It did for me today with my new pi's from pi hut
No it won't work.
Formatting a card is totally unnecessary and a waste of time if an OS image will be written to it.
I've read it and I'm still in the dark.

Unfortunately this didn't work for me.k-pi wrote: ↑Sun Jul 07, 2019 2:15 pmI had similar problems with my new RPi4B, what I have at present that seems to work, in config.txt, is,
hdmi_group=2 ## for HDMI monitor
hdmi_mode=39 ## for 1360x768 resolution
After that, I at least got a working set up, so might work for you, might need to change where I have commented.
I can't agree more. I know it is early days and it is a new product, but this should work out of the box like the previous models I've had. The fact it does not for many people is not good.alanj49 wrote: ↑Sun Jul 07, 2019 7:56 pmI purchased this thing on Friday and have just had chance to to try and use it this evening. I am getting exactly the same probelm, there is a flurry of the green LED when I attach the power supply and the it settles into the four flash routine. I have reloaded the images onto the SD Card from the NOOBS zip file and the Raspbian with Desktop zip file, I have used Etcher to flash the image and STILL I get the four flash LED. I think that this is quite shabby for a new product, I have had no problem at all with the Pi 3B+. It does not seem there is a clear solution to this as it seems that different things have worked for different people, and if I do not find a solution quickly it will be going back from whence it came - The Raspberry Pi Store in Cambridge.
You didn't wish to get a new one, that was verified working leaving the store?alanj49 wrote: ↑Mon Jul 08, 2019 8:20 pmWell, after many hours of trying to get thing to boot up it went back from whence it came this afternoon. As a last resort I put the two Recovery files on an SD card and I got the flashing green led's as I should get, so it wasn't a faulty SD Card socket. When I took it into the shop he put it on their bench and led four flashing routine started, so he put their SD Card in which was working on their device on the bench, again four flashes of the led. So he gave the refund without quible
