🧐 How to install Ubuntu 20.04 on a Raspberry Pi Zero?

• One minute to read

To use the Raspberry Pi as a personal dev server, you should install Ubuntu Server 20.04 TLS. With Ubuntu, you can use the latest Node.js and WebAssembly services on the device. But can I use Ubuntu Server 20.04 on the smallest Raspberry Pi Zero?

The NOOBS SD card you purchased from most online stores probably only has the 64-bit version of Ubuntu pre-installed. It would not boot on the 32-bit Raspberry Pi Zero (W).

To solve this problem, just go to the Ubuntu Raspberry Pi website or simply use the Raspberry Pi Imager to burn a 32-bit Ubuntu Server 20.04 image onto your SIM card.
