Today we will take a new drive in Ubuntu, and format and partition it. I will be doing this under a VM, because it is easy to add or delete drives.
Do you have a second partition you want to automount a boot? Then this is the place for you. I’ll be using the same VM as in other tutorials.
After bringing all pieces of furniture in the same place, we had to bolt them together. Afterwards, I also added LED lights to make working on the hardware easier. In the future I plan to make the lighting on each shelf individually controllable, that’s why all the LED strips have separate connectors.
Some of you may have heard of https://www.reddit.com/r/homelab/. Some people there have amazing builds. As such, considering that I have some hardware laying around and that we are changing the furniture downstairs, I decided to use what pieces of furniture I can to create my own homelab.

In my case, this means I can access my windows share without having to open it to the whole internet.
In this tutorial I will show you how to install Raspbian and enable SSH on your Raspberry Pi without using a screen or keyboard. After you are done you will have a Raspberry Pi connected to your router, which you can access using your PC.
