I followed the Windows instructions (Step 3). One thing to note, if it's not already obvious, is that you need to click on 'Write' to put the image on your SD card. If you hit 'Read', it will overwrite the image file with whatever was on your SD care. This is however a great way to make a backup of an already configured Pi and either save steps in setting a new Pi up or restoring after any issue or SD card/hardware failure.

@MRCRAB Once you write the image to the sd card you can put it in the pi and the rest is straight forward.
