    Installing Rasbmc on a Rasberry Pi (networked version)

    Windows installation is very simple and works on Windows 2000 / XP, Vista and Seven. First, fetch the Windows installer from this link Hidden Content and extract the contents to a folder.

    Next up, run the program called “setup.exe”, you may receive a UAC prompt if running Vista or later. This is because the Raspbmc installer needs to run as an Administrator on your system to write to the SD card at block device level.

    You will now be presented with an interface such as this:

    Hidden Content

    Your SD card should be shown on the list. Simply check the checkbox and click Install to complete the installation. Note, if you have not inserted your card yet, you can do so now and click Refresh to update the devices list.

    (if your wanting to use a usb drive for this then please tick the box marked 'install rasbmc to a usb drive' and connect both sdcard and usb/pendrive on install. This version requires network connection preferably via lan for install, wireless can be setup later)

    WARNING: This program enumerates ALL removable devices on the system, data loss can occur and I will not be responsible if you image the wrong device. It is recommended to remove all devices you are not imaging for safety purposes.

    Note if you want to use your SD card for purposes other than Raspbmc and the card only appears to be about 60MB in Windows: That’s because Windows does not recognise the Linux partitions that Raspbmc uses. There is a simple fix for this though — rerun the Windows installer and click “Restore SD card for formatting”. You will now be able to see the full size of your SD card as a “Removable Device” for formatting in Windows. On new versions of Windows, you will be automatically prompted to format the device upon clicking this button. Simply format the device and your SD card can be used for storing content again.


    Note: this is the networked version and is the best version to use as it will download the latest version of xbmc on install. you can download a standalone app Hidden Content


    once your done with the above then add some 'essential' addons and channels by following the instructions Hidden Content

    Ah now I understand. Your wanting to install to windows and not a pi. Head to Hidden Content and download from there. This tutorial is for installing to a raspberry pi

    Alan, yes i decided it was easier installing straight to windows rather than the rasp version, which i have now done, so i`m looking to see how i can get the movie tab under the main video portal tab, any ideas how to do this m8 ??
