Hello,

i tried it several times. It always reports the error: start4.elf – not compatible

I first had images from aracdepunks and i used Balena Etcher or the rti-imager from start menu, to install the image.

It only booted with official raspberry or retropie, when i installed a normal image over the internet.

Writing a ready image, it never booted and it always wrote start4.elf error. i used a sd card extreme from sandisk with 256 GB. Later i would try again to use the M.2 SSD, Kinston A400 with the Argon One case.

Do you have an idea for a solution?

The SD Card sounds like a fake (i.e. will boot a very small image such as retropie base but not a large one because even though reports as big, its not got the space)

 

The SSD boot, you will need to ensure you update the eeprom to enable it to boot from ssd

Thank you for your help.

I read about eeprom update before. i can do this again.

 

how is the configuration about the items? i have the argon one case, and it has a ssd drive, and a sd card slot. i have a 8gb micro sd card, and a san disk extreme 256GB micro sd card.

the final config, i want, is a 400 GB (approx) image file on the ssd drive (kingston a400). i know that i should use raspberry pi system to use terminal and sd card copier, to copy to sdd drive later.

about eeprom, where can i update it? do i use the 8gb card with raspberry pi system, and use terminal? and then use a usb card adapter for micro sd card, with the image from for example supreme pipiggies ?

Luckily it’s booting. 

 I used instructions, and replaced the .efi and .dat files, from a working raspberry pi image, into the boot folder of the SD Card.

Now the “[200gb]-Retro-Touch.Supreme.Pro.PI4-PiPiggies” is booting, but stops ” no gamepads detected”, although the dives worked fine with other images. I got a keyboard from Logitech (K400 Plus with USB Dongle) and a PS4 Controller connected with a cable.

I can SSH the device, but i don’t know at which file i change a gamepad config.
