For those stumbling on this topic. I stopped with installation of Home Assistant on my non wifi Raspberry zero, because I didn’t wanted to use the installation within Raspbian, too much hassle, but I prefered one of the provided images by home assistant for Raspberries.
The Home Assistant Rpi0w image doesn’t work on the non-wifi Rpi0 (at this moment). Therefore I bought a wifi pi zero and used a USB with the rpi0w image.
I still wanted to use the ENC28j60 module, and therefore I found it handy to be able to open the HassOS-boot partition on my mac, for instance to add a CONFIG directory with my wifi credentials for getting the first connection. And also an easy way to edit the config.txt trough mac user interface.
To be able to to this I did below instructions:
To access the hassos-boot partition on a mac, plug in your SD or USB with your home assistant installation.
Open Terminal and enter command:
a list of connected disks is dispayed. The hassOS drive wil be displayed as below:
the disk number can vary, here it is disk6
/dev/disk6 (external, physical):
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *31.6 GB disk6
1: Microsoft Reserved 33.6 MB disk6s1
2: Linux Filesystem 25.2 MB disk6s2
3: Linux Filesystem 268.4 MB disk6s3
4: Linux Filesystem 25.2 MB disk6s4
5: Linux Filesystem 268.4 MB disk6s5
6: Linux Filesystem 8.4 MB disk6s6
7: Linux Filesystem 100.7 MB disk6s7
8: Linux Filesystem 30.9 GB disk6s8
Make a new directory on your Mac which is used as a mount folder. You cannot do that in your root username folder, because of security, but on the desktop for instance works
Then in terminal use below command, where the # is replaced by the corresponding disknumber.
sudo /sbin/mount_msdos /dev/disk#s1 /Users/username/Desktop/hassos-boot
Admin mac password is asked, enter
The hassos-boot partition is now being able to be accessed from the mac so you can edit config.txt and other files within Finder.
