NOOBS INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Insert an SD card that is 4GB or greater in size into your computer.
2. Format the SD card using the platform-specific instructions below:
The instructions need updating like a lot of the documentation available. However, it is possible to install raspbian using NOOBS on a 4GB SD card. Just needs some additional work.
First, format the SD card with SD formattter using the Format Size Adjustment option ON. When finished formatting unzip NOOBS to the SD card. Then while still plugged into your Windows machine, I assume you are installing it using a windows machine, you need to delete the directories in the OS directory that you do not need. So select the OS directory and delete directories Arch, OpenELEC, Pidora, RaspBMC and RISC_OS and the data_partition directory.
You can now eject the SD card and plug it into your Pi. NOOBS will resize the FAT partition and then you will get a menu showing the OS to install. Select the one you wanted, raspbian booting into scratch I think, and it will say it needs 2512MB but it should now show the space available around about 3110MB or possibly a couple of hundred MB more depending on your actual SD card size.
With my set up SD formatter said my SD card was 3.68GB and when NOOBS got to installing raspbian it said I needed 2512MB and I had 3117MB free. Raspbian installed and ran without problems.
Hope this is useful.
