I recently bought a Raspberry Pi 2, Model B. I am intending to mostly connect to it over the local WLAN or Ethernet, using a SSH connection from my main computer.
However, right now I have a Raspberry Pi that does not yet have any software installed on it. The guides on setting up a Raspberry Pi that I've found online so far all start with connecting the machine to a HDMI-display. At this time, I do not have a display with an HDMI-connection over here.
Is it possible to install (any version of, but raspbian is probably preferred) Linux on the Raspberry Pi without needing to connect it to a HDMI display?
