ReSpeaker 4 mic array compatibility

Is it possible to make the respeaker 4 work with hassio? It would be awesome if it is possible. I plan on using it for voice recognition.
My setup is a raspberry pi 3b+ with only hassio installed. And I really don’t want to install any underlying OS on it.
There is only a driver for Raspbian, and when I try to install it I get an expected error:

/boot/overlays not found or not a directory
dtparam not found
dtoverlay not found
Errors found, exiting.

(I have tried this with root on SSH port 22222)
According to this, it does only support official operating systems for the Raspberry Pi.

Same here! Only hassio installed

I ended up installing Raspbian with hassio instead. Now it works.
