Insert the SD card into your Pi and connect the power supply. Your Pi will now boot into NOOBS and should display a list of operating systems that you can choose to install. If your display remains blank, you should select the correct output mode for your display by pressing one of the following number keys on your keyboard: 1. HDMI mode - this is the default display mode. 2. HDMI safe mode - select this mode if you are using the HDMI connector and cannot see anything on screen when the Pi has booted. 3. Composite PAL mode - select either this mode or composite NTSC mode if you are using the composite RCA video connector. 4. Composite NTSC mode If you are still having difficulties after following these instructions, then please visit the Raspberry Pi Forums ( http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/ ) for support.
