Begginer's Installation problem

I am new to this and I was trying to install Home assistance on RPI4. I created the SD card (128GB SAN DISK Extreme) When I started the RPI it hung up at the cursor as shown in the picture.
What do I do now?

The install guide tells you:


  1. Insert the SD card into your Raspberry Pi.
  2. Plug in an Ethernet cable that is connected to the network.
  3. Connect the power supply to start up the device.
  4. In the browser of your desktop system, within a few minutes you will be able to reach your new Home Assistant at homeassistant.local:8123.

You’re at step #4

That is not stuck, it is finished :slight_smile:

LOL, thanks.
Shows how much I know :frowning:
I thought it will open a GUI.
How do I get to the GUI?

How do I get to the browser. I just have ha> no GUI. Do I need to type anything?

Open a browser on your computer and go to http://homeassistant.local:8123

No GUI on your HA box, everything is done using a browser on another computer

Thank you.
Finally I understand :slight_smile:
So I can tuck away the Raspberry as a headless system and not touch it again?
On an Android phone do I install an App or continue with a browser?


The browser works, the app is for when you want to report your phone’s location to HA (and other things)

Thanks for the answer. I am beginning to get the hang of it :slight_smile:
