First Raspberry, first problem :)

Hello guys. I bought my first Raspberry Pi 3 B +. It arrived today and I immediately trayed to install HA. I followed the instructions from the site but it does not work and I need you to figure out if I have something wrong. First of all I have formatted a uSD Sandisk 64GB Class 10 UHS-I with SD Memory Card Formatter Ver. 5.0. I downloaded the image of 64bit (not 32bit. Correct?) And I flash on the SD with Etcher. At the end I got an error message from the Mac: “Unreadable disk, initialize or eject”. I thought it was regular and I ejected it (correct?). Then I inserted the SD into the RB and waited. So much (+ 20 minutes). And redone all over again. What I have wrong? The browser can not connect to http: // hassio.local: 8123. I noticed that once the red light on the RB is powered it stays on and the green light blinks irregularly every 5-10“. A single orange light flashes on the LAN connector. With IP Scan (and one other software) I do not see the RB IP. Any opinion / suggestion? Thanks

I assume you are using

  1. Use the 32 bit, the 64 bit image is still in development.

  2. Keep waiting

  3. Being able to use the hostname (http://hassio.local:8123) depends on name resolution working. For the sake of testing, use the IP address, eg - you can probably get the IP address from your router, or from the fing app in an android device.

It takes longer than 20 minutes in my experience.
You should be able to connect with a web browser after a while and see a logo screen as per @nickrout’s post above.
I also used the 64 bit version and have not had any issues (might depend on components you use) but maybe I’m lucky. 32bit is recommended.

Thank guys. I’m really curious to try HA!
