Hello, I have worked on openhabe and Raspebrry zero for some time. It was not a speed demon, so I bought a new Raspberry and added a ssd 32 GB disk.

How to transfer the image from the old penny to a new ssd drive connected to a usb?

I know that there is a possibility from the openhaba menu in putty to move boot partitions because there is such an option but what does it give me?

I would like to have everything on ssd.

Have you tried making an image of the SD card, then flash your SSD with the image, then resize the partition?

Your on version 2.4 so just make a back up with sudo opehabian-cli backup --full. Move the file from the pi to your PC. Install a fresh image on the SSD with Etcher then restore the backup. When using Etcher with the SSD you’ll need to turn on the danger mode to write to the drive. Just make sure you select the correct drive.

Hello everybody,

I know the thread is older, but I wanted to briefly share my experience with a swap from RPI 3B to 3B +.

Steps that I did:

  • I have created a backup of the SSD
  • I have removed the static IP from the Fritzbox
  • RPI 3B shut down
  • RPI 3B + connected
  • RPI 3B + start it
  • RPI 3B + assigned the old IP address

Finished :slight_smile:

It worked perfectly
