Osmc and raspbian

Fri Feb 12, 2016 9:17 am

Hello. I've been looking into having OSMC on my Rpi and have found that it's on the latest version of Noobs. I wondered if you can swap between it and raspbian. If so how do I do this? Thanks.

If you have an Internet Connection via Ethernet when you first boot up NOOBS it will offer to install various Operating Systems.

On subsequent boot ups you will be presented with a menu to choice which OS you want:

Note that when NOOBS gives you the choice of what Operating Systems you want to install, it is a one-time choice. You cannot add another one later except by wiping the card and starting again.

If you want that kind of multiple-OS set-up with a choice at boot-up, look at BerryBoot.

Thanks for your help. I now have raspbian and OSMC running on my Pi.
