To install Xbian, you will only have to download the files and select the installer to choose the SD card, the one we should have inserted before starting with the process in our PC. Once it finishes, this SD will be connected to the Raspberry, and this, at the same time, to the TV by HDMI and to the net by Ethernet. And that's all.
