Where should I install HA OS?

Hello everyone,

I purchased a mini PC (Intel NUC) where I installed Home Assistant OS on it and it’s working just fine!

At first that was the only thing I was planning to do but I figured after that I wanted to host a plex server as well

I did found an addon on Home Assistant that I installed and configured and it’s running fine but I feel like it’s not the best way to do it.

I’ve read that I cannot add libraries from external disk (only sources from the current disk where Plex Server is installed) in my case a 128GB SSD…

What would be your advice to host both HA & Plex Server + Transmission (or any other torrent client) on a MINI PC NUC ?
Should I install Windows + Plex Server + a VM with HA on it ?

Thanks for your help

Proxmox is probably the easiest way

and use some scripts from here

Next version of HA will allow you to connect external disks

If you are looking for a “Home Server” have a look at CASA OS This is very fancy user friendly front end to Docker and Samba shares . Will allow you to run Plex , HA and many other useful programs as docker images.
