I am trying to set up a Pi for the first time and have followed the instructions carefully, however when I try and boot for the first time into a GUI an error message appears stating that there is 'insufficient memory' to boot the system.
I have read some of the previous posts and have reformatted the SD card to ensure that the whole card space is being used and everything seems fine (3.9 Gb available) but I still have the same problem. When the system boots up it just takes to a black screen with a blinking cursor in the corner that seems to accept no commands at all.
Do I need to use an 8Gb SD Card? Since I bought the whole system as part of a kit through Rapid Electonics I am confused.
