I have a startup problem with the image 64GB RPi4 Sinden Lightgun Fully Loaded Image based on Harry Dog 8 on a RP4 Model B 4GB RAM.
When starting the error message appears again and again:
Start4.elf is not compatible
This board requires newer software.

I have downloaded the image several times and tested various SD cards.

Other images run on the PI4

but unfortunately not this one, I bought an extra Sinden…

Does anyone have a tip ?

The start4.elf I have already exchanged, also theverse files on the boot exchanged.
All unsuccessful.

 

greetings

Hello

Issue solved.

I figured the board model was the same and should work in the new one so I was really confused. It turned out that the new board I got (rev. 1.5) was different from the old one (rev. 1.4) and needed some new firmware in order to boot properly. Since the old board didn’t work and nowadays its really hard to find ANY board it seemed I had to start from scratch. The only way to fix this is to update RetroPie from within RetroPie itself. But, before I gave up, I came across a post online where someone mentioned having the same issue. They were able to fix it without needing the old board. So I gave it a shot and it worked! After booting up I immediately updated my packages and RetroPie (which now is v.4.8) and thankfully saved my collection!

The fix I found online was very simple. Prepare a new microSD card with the latest version of RetroPie. From the partition labeled “boot”, copy all the files

“fixup*.dat” and “start*.elf”.

Then, plug in your old RetroPie microSD card and paste them into the “boot” partition for that card. If prompted, replace all the files. Once it’s done, eject and try booting it now on the new board. It might take a minute (literally!) and show you a black screen but soon enough you should see your old RetroPie installation load up. Don’t forget to update from the RetroPie Setup Script!

 

Hope this helps someone else!

It’s a shame that image is crap. I have been checking and there’s games that are basically unplayable included so i am making my own based on BB8 and actually testing the games.

Not to necro but do you mean copy everything between fixup.dat and start.elf or just those 2 files?
