I have a Dell 6000 small pc that I want to use to play games but can't seem to work out how to set it up. I installed recalbox that wants to run from a usb but I wanted it to run from an internal hard drive. I figured out how to do this and it worked great. I played the games that came with recalbox and they worked great. The hard drive that I burned the image to is 250gig but inside RB it only shows (I think) around 60gig. I am not connected to a network so loading roms became a huge issue. First I wanted to store them on the same drive with the recalbox os (that is only showing a small amount of the space available) and I wanted to transfer the roms via usb (the largest usb I had available was 32gig) and I couldn't really figure out how to do that anyway. I tried to take out the hard drive from my recalbox pc and hooking it up to a drive dock I have on my pc but the pc wouldn't read it. I was going to do this to see if possibly I could add the roms directly to the recalbox os from my windows pc and possibly resize the recalbox partition to show the correct size.
I downloaded CoinOPS Forgotten Worlds 3 PACKED and ran that on my windows PC and it worked great. So thought that I would install windows 7 on the old PC and use the CoinOPS. That method came with a whole list of issues like getting the game frontend to load on startup (I figured that out), windows running into a problem and popping up messages in the middle of a game and then having to exit the games frontend and fix the windows issues when I have just the gamepad hooked up ( would have to hook up a mouse and keyboard to fix the problems)Â But I don't want Windows on the old system.
I guess that my only real question is: Is there a stand-alone Recalbox style OS that comes preconfigured and loaded that can be installed on an internal harddrive.
I have also tried Batocera but the only packed versions that I see are for Rasberry Pi. I did download the PC X86 Batocera image but couldn't really get that to work correctly. I have also installed Lakka (not keen on the UI) but would be willing to try anything.
COINOPS Would be the way forward , unsure why you had so many pop ups ??
