Booting from SSD - what am I doing wrong?
so I have a Pi 3b+ and just bought a:
Samsung 860 EVO 500 GB SATA 2.5 Inch Internal Solid State Drive
ELUTENG USB 3.0 to SATA Cable for 2.5" HDD or SSD Adapter 5Gbps High Speed Plug and Play Support UASP SATA I II III Hard Disk Drive USB
I flashed an SD with Pi OS and added the boot from usb code
SD card in, boots into Pi OS
Flash SSD card with same Pi OS
Pi off, connect USB SSD
Pi on, boots into Pi OS
Then Pi off again, flash same SSD with HA using these instructions
and the link for Pi 3 32 bit (https://github.com/…/download/5.13/hassos_rpi3-5.13.img.xz)
SSD connected, Pi on. First time, SSD lights come on but green light on Pi doesnt
Next time green light comes on for a second then off and nothing
I presume I have installed the right version of HA onto the SSD so what is going wrong?
I have the original Pi power pack.
Thoughts are, new SSD to USB cable not supported but then it has worked with Pi OS?
Not enough power getting the SSD?
