You only need to do that to put in your set up your wifi. You can do a headless setup but I think you still need a kb & monitor or tv.

Take a look at this, it may get you started without the kb and monitor. https://core-electronics.com.au/tutorials/raspberry-pi-zerow-headless-wifi-setup.html Also, have you tried installing the image with Etcher on the 16GB card you have? Windows doesn't always show the total available on the card. Can't hurt to try.

No, it's Raspbian Stretch with Desktop because that includes Java which is needed for HA-Bridge.

I ordered a larger card. Would be nice to have a non-linux way of shrinking an image.

Having nothing special to do on New Year's Day, I tried running Alex10 on the PiZW using Exagear and Wine but the PiZW just doesn't have the horsepower to run it. Exagear installed easily but Wine took 6+ hours to install.  B:( Then I installed Winefile and was able to install Alex10 - slowly.  It did install but when I tried to run it Wine said that it couldn't find Mono.  Further research took me deeper down the rabbit hole of more things to install at which point I'd had enough.  So no Alex10 for the Pi for now.  The PiAlexaHub does the job just fine though so no big deal.

Thanks for the info. When my larger sd card arrives I will attempt the Alexahub headless.

I wanted to see if the image I created could be set up headless but Windows won't recognize the card so there's no way I can see to add the wpa.supplicant.conf file before booting it on the Pi.  The easiest thing would be to use an HDMI cable to connect to a monitor or TV and a USB keyboard (no mouse needed).  Then you could power up and go through the wifi configuration. Once done, you can shutdown, remove the HDMI cable and keyboard and then power up with just the CM19a plugged in. Then you should be able to open HA-Bridge from a browser.

Interesting, didn't even know it was there. Maybe you could give that a try although if you have the HDMI adapter coming and a kb I think that will be MUCH easier.
