In this video, we’ll install the new Network Install (beta) bootloader to a Raspberry Pi 4. Once installed, you will be able to install an operating system to your Pi without having to image the microSD or SSD on your computer! The new bootloader supports the ability to download an operating system image from the internet and write it directly to your microSD or USB/SSD drive. Links to the documentation below.
