Moved rootFS to external drive -> password no longer working

Hello, I did a fresh install on a rpi4 and the very first thing I did was moving the rootFS to the external drive. After the reboot all logins fail with incorrect password. I tried root and dietpi and also used the default password, but the system still won't log me in. Is there anything I can do no...

Re: RPI 4 won't boot with usb hub

Hey again, it took some time but I was able to resolve my issues. It seems that it was indeed an issue with the power supply of the external 2.5 drive, even when using an active USB hub. I then replaced the drive with an external 3.5 drive and didn't have any issues so far, even with high load. Ther...

Re: RPI 4 won't boot with usb hub

The system is working without keyboard now, even remote access is working again. I have no clue why it did not work last time when running headless. I added the powered usb hub because the data in my external drive gets corrupted when the drive has to copy and write big data. Sadly the usb hub doesn...

RPI 4 won't boot with usb hub

Hello,

I am using a RPI4 with an external HDD. There were some power issues so I decided to add a powered USB hub between the rpi and the HDD. To my surprise the system won't boot when the hub is used. Do I need to do a fresh install when adding an USB hub?

Adding the service there failed because wg-quick@wg0 was not found as service. Then I found a folder called 'wg-quick@', so I tried ...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 constantly marked as "too hot"

With active cooling you definitely should get better results than 70°C. I am using passive cooling only and when I do a stress test I will reach 65°C after 20 minutes. With 70°C the cpu should already be throttled.
