Raspberry Pi install process


I have read the documentation page regarding partition expansion on raspberry pi but I’m not sure I correctly understand the whole install process.

So here is how I understand the whole process:

  1. put the image on the sd card
  2. boot the pi from said sd card
    3?) here is the part where I’m not sure: do I run ros install -d /dev/mmcblk0 -c my-cloud-config.yml -f (are all the needed tools loaded in memory so I can overwrite what’s on the sd card?)
    3?) add new partition and change configuration (there I’d scp my own cloud config but where would it be stored until reboot?

Edit it seems I’ve been misled by the fact that there is now raspberry pi image for rancheros v0.7.1, in light of this I understand the install process better now.
