Can't connect after installation

I have just installed Home assistant on a Raspberry Pi 4 using the NES case as per Paul Hibbert’s tutorial (
However, nothing shows up when I try to connect to http://homeassistant:8123/. I have also tried https://homeassistant.local:8123/. I just get an error “We can’t connect to the server”. I don’t know what to do - getting stuck at this stage is not very fun.

The NES case lights up and I can hear the fan. I don’t have anyway to tell what is going on at the level of the Pi.

Anybody have any ideas how to move foward from here?

I can tell the Pi is on. I can see thePi’s red LED is light on through the case

In the Top of this Forum, there is a link to DOCS where there is a link to Installations ( of Various types and Hardware ( PI included )
Best approach is reading/following these instead of Year Old, YT’s , Which noone is going to watch to help you ( spite you linked to this )

Also Read this Docs, as it will help you understand what’s in many cases are required information, for people to understand, know what you have done etc.

Thanks. I’ve got it sorted now. You are right… it was not clear in the video you have to remove the SD card so as to boot from the SSD.
