Hass.io Features proposal


I’m thinking about to use one usb hdd for root drive with my Pi instead to use the normal micro sd for storage.

I use in my custom home-assistant installation on raspinan that adafruit guide:

That is based on that

What do you think to include that on the new hass.io image?

So if I want I can use my external usb drive ad root filesystem storage that was more efficient that the micro sd.

Best Regards



This would be nice to have.

ok, after holidays return I’ll take a look how to get this on resin-os base


Have you made any progress on the external drive option??

Has there been any progress to the use of an external hard drive for HASSIO?
I have hassio on my pi3, installed in a Geekworm case with a SDD. I can not get the pi to see the hard drive to be able to use it as a boot from. If I connect the hard drive to my other pi3 that has the all in on installer on it with raspbian I can use dmesg and see the hard drive. Can you help?

Bump? Updates?

I’ve heard nothing new and don’t know how to bump.
