Raspberry Pi Boot Options

While booting up, the Raspberry Pi reads some configuration parameters from the SD card. These parameters are stored in a file named config.txt. This file is within the part of the SD card which is visible to Windows PCs. Therefore, you can edit this configuration file from a Windows PC, from a Mac, from a Linux PC, or from within the Raspberry Pi itself.

This configuration file contains instructions which are necessary to setup the display. If you have severe problems with the display, you will need to connect the SD card to a PC so that you can edit the configuration file. If the display is working but you wish to make minor adjustments, you may find it more convenient to edit the file from within the Raspberry Pi itself.
