    I was not able to connect to the configured Wi-Fi.
    Please try again with your correct SSID and password.
    Also check your signal quality. Available Wi-Fi networks:...

So you did:

  1. imaged your SD Card with openHAbian 1.4
  2. put it in your Pi
  3. started the Pi

or did you add your Wifi-credentials between 1. and 2. in the config before starting the Pi?

I think, in some of my tests, this went fine with me. But mostly I connect the Pi to LAN as all my Pis will be connected via LAN anyways. So my tipp would be to just place the Pi for installation near an Ethernet and plug it in.

Just starting the Pi again starts the install script again - if it finds eth0, it will use that first I guess!
