If I knew the answer I might.
I was pointing out that it’s not the best thing to do to continue to post about the same topic over and over again without letting someone who does know have a chance to answer you.
So far you’ve posted the same question 5 times in less than a day.
Have you tried searching for SD card image writing software that is supported by your hardware? I don’t use a Chromebook and have no idea what is supported there. Especially if Etcher doesn’t work.
Please stop making new posts with the same question.
For $7 on amazon, you can buy a sd card reader that you can use with your legion gaming pc:
I found If I have Chrome OS How Do I Use Etcher - #3 by zvin - balenaEtcher - balenaForums which tells that at least some Chromebooks can run balenaEtcher.
They also tell than renaming the .img file of Home Assistant (which you can get by unpacking the .xz file which is like a .zip) so that it ends with .bin, and using the Chromebook recovery tool to write on the SD card may work.
Note that I do not own a Chromebook, so I am not certain any of these will work, nor if the advice is sensible.
thank you so much this rlly worked
