    That's part of the reason I posted. I'm like a kid who doesn't know the stove is hot. :-)

    I had decided to go pi and everyone seems to agree the real issue is the sd card. I didn't' find much info at all, so just tried things.

    The only reason for Bullseye was for boot from SSD, but if I'm going to have combability issues, I will just leave it a test system until we hear better news or if I'm feeling lucky....

    I started testing my sd cards a year ago, and I'll never use another without individual testing.
    You do not need Bullseye to boot from a SSD. The support was added via hardware on the Pi 4, and in Raspberry Pi OS Buster.

    You might want to have a closer look at Raspbian Bullseye before you install HS on it. It is currently dogged with bugs and the developers have now reverted to a legacy version just to keep it maintained. Any application like HS that runs in a server edition of Raspbian will see little or no benefit using Bullseye. It is recommended that users of HS stay with Buster until these issues are resolved. As I suggested research Bullseye a little more.

    How to install HS4 on BullsEye & boot to SSD

    This procedure will both upgrade to Bullseye OS and enable boot to SSD.

    This is both rough and unfinished. I don't know the best way to AutoStart on boot, for instance

    You will need both a CF and SSD drive. The eeprom update image will require the sd card. and of course you'll need an SSD.
    When you boot from the CF drive, it programs the EEprom to boot from USB. Boot to USB is not enabled by default.

    These instructions were copied almost verbatim from https://www.tomshardware.com/how-to/...berry-pi-4-usb

    This will only work on a Pi4 not Pi3

    1. Download and install Raspberry Pi Imager from the Raspberry Pi website.

    2. Insert a spare micro SD card into your computer. Note that this card will be erased. once you boot this once, eeprom is written and you wont' need to do it again.

    3. Launch Raspberry Pi Imager and under Operating System scroll down to Misc Utility Images and left click to open the next menu.

    4. Select Bootloader and then Select USB Boot. This will return us to the main menu.

    5. Under Storage click on the button and select the micro SD card. Double check that you have the right drive before proceeding.

    6. Click on Write to download and write a configuration image to the micro SD card. When done remove the card from your computer.

    7. Plug in SSD drive into USB3 port.

    8. Launch Raspberry Pi Imager and under Operating System Select the first option, Raspberry Pi OS.

    5. Under Storage click on the button and select the SSD. Double check that you have the right drive before proceeding.

    6. Click on Write to download and write a configuration image to the SSD.

    7. Insert the micro SD card into your Raspberry Pi 4 / 400 and power on. The green activity light will blink a steady pattern once the update has been completed. If you have an HDMI monitor attached, the screen will go green once the update is complete. Allow 10 seconds or more for the update to complete, do not remove the micro SD card until the update is complete.

    8. Power off the Raspberry Pi and remove the micro SD card.

    9. your next boot will be to the USB SSD

    I don't know much about Linux at all, I just am a relentless searcher.

    Thanks to Rodger D This post gave just enough info to pursue this.
