I can use large SD card, but:
(1) I already have a small SD card I want to re-use, and want to separate OS and data.
(2) I want to back up/store from Windows for data files.
(3) large capacity flash drive is cheap.
External monitor, powered USB hub, wifi dongle, keyboard/mouse.
RPi OS; Raspibian Jessie Lite
Although I will be using RPi headless, the easiest way to set up is hook up external monitor, powered USB hub, connect keyboard mouse + wifi module. I tried different headless set up, but they all were too inconvenient, especially with RPi models with only one USB port.
1GHz R8M/R8 ("A13 compatible, Cortex-A8 is ARMv7-A, CPU single core")

Connect to Windows 10 via USB
To connect to monitor, a separate adapter is required and no Ethernet port. Follow below steps to set up headless.
Connect micro-USB to Windows 10 PC
Open device manager. You'll find "CDC Composite Gadget" with exclamation point, meaning no driver is installed. If you don't see this, that's good. If you see this go to next step.
Right mouse click on "CDC Composite Gadget"
Properties -> Update driver -> browse -> Let me pick -> ports -> Microsoft -> USB Serial device.
Connect to CHIP via Serial
You'll now see new COM port. Follow this to connect to CHIP via serial port you just setup:
In putty, click on "Session" in left panel under Category. select "Serial" for connection type, and in Serial line field, type in the COM port that was set up in previous step. E.g. "COM4", and speed=9600.
Click on "Open" button.

Set up WIFI
login as root
Choose "Activate a connection"
Choose wifi, enter password
To set static IP, run nmtui again and edit the connection.
CHIP's pre-installed OS has GUI running. You can VNC to it, or disable the GUI and just use SSH or serial:
Environment: Windows 10 64-bit, English version. Installed Korean IME.
If file names are in Korean (e.g. downloaded files), Windows can display the Korean file name in Explorer without any problem, but it will not display the file name properly. And, you can't enter Korean in cmd.
I already have Python 2.7 on Windows 10, and needed Python 3.x keeping 2.7. This method works fine with Eclipse Pydev as well. There are other ways to do have Python 2 and 3 together in Windows system, but I found this way is the simplest and easiest.
Windows 10 64-bit. Python 2.7 64-bit, Eclipse+Pydev are already installed.
