"Copying the image to an SD Card on Windows" option works like a charm.Seems simple enough, not too happy about item 7) though...
Anyone been through this yet, don't really want to be the first
No, there is video only when the system starts booting - Rpi have zero onboard storage, everything is on the card.do you get any video out with no SD card inserted?

That's boot partition all right, but Windows's vanity won't allow it to accept the existence of multi-partition memory cards, so no one is the wiser.Thanks Artlav, probably messed up the SD card programming. Haven't got any linux box to look at the card with. This is what it looks like in Windows:
That's just Windows playing smart, probably WinZip associated img with itself as a floppy image or something.I have a feeling the two kernel .zip files shoudn't be zipped? or is Windows just putting the last type of file it saw onto the .img?
The yellow thing opposite to the HDMI socket is the good old video out, which can be hooked up to any TV with the AV sockets (which is any TV made in the last 30 years, i think).Can't do any more checks with the video, the only HDMI set is on full SKY TV viewing mode now, and won't be available for 12 hours, or I lose a leg...
