Connect WD PiDrive device to your Raspberry Pi with the included WD PiDrive cable. Recommended power adapter is 5V, 3A (5V, 2.5A minimum) with a good quality low-resistance power cable. The WD PiDrive power kit is recommended for setting up the above (available at wdlabs.wd.com). Insert microSD card, included with the WD PiDrive device, into the microSD slot on your Raspberry Pi. Connect keyboard, mouse, video monitor and any other peripherals to your Raspberry Pi. 

Prior to installing OSs, you must disconnect any internet connections (Wi-Fi or Ethernet) to ensure optimised compatibility of installed software (Raspbian PIXEL, Raspbian Lite and dedicated Project Spaces). Turn on video monitor, connect 5V power to your Raspberry Pi.
