Raspberry OS Network Installer - Testers needed

Raspberry recently announced that there will be a modified bootloader which enables an installation via network.

They are now looking for testers.

More details:


Unfortunately, it still requires physical access to the Pi. A keyboard needs to be connected. I had hoped that it might provide a way to re-flash a remote Pi’s SD card as part of upgrading from Buster to Bullseye.

It does solve the problem of not having another computer with an SD card reader available to write the Pi OS to the SD card.

Yes, that’s a bit disappointing.

I was also expecting that the device can boot and offer remote access to install the image.

Maybe it changes over time, but i do not have much hope.
