How can I install an OS on a pi with no HDMI?
The HDMI is dead, won’t work, has been that way for ages.
It’s been Ok that way, but the SD card has crashed and needs a fresh one, and fresh OS.
Once an OS were to be installed, it could be operated over VNC/SSH, but until then, how can it be configured?
How can the initial set-up be completed?
I don’t have access to a monitor with video-in on the 3.5mm jack either.
I think that Pi is only any use as a doorstop now.
