Believe the command line install of Linux by default is a minimum installation.

Basically install Raspberry Pi OS - the "lite" version on your SD card. You'll need to enable ssh so you can login to the Pi seeing as its headless. Once you've got the Pi booted you ssh into it and do everything from the ssh session (eg OS updates, install BOINC, edit config files).

They are much easier to manage if you set BOINC up to allow remote control and then you can use BOINCtasks to do the usual things you would have done via BOINC Manager. Its also great at displaying a "farm" wide view of what is running. I have 12 Pis all headless running BOINC 24/7.
