The board will connect to your HDMI monitor via its HDMI connector.


You may now plug the Ethernet cable into the 10/100 Ethernet jack of the board to get network access.


Now, plug your keyboard and mouse into any of the available USB.


Finally, plug the SD-card into the SD-card socket.


With all the peripherals attached, plug in the wall adapter (5V DC) and power on your board. You will see a few lights flash.

You have successfully completed this chapter of the guide.
