Hello, my english is too bad…let’s see if a good Samaritan can help me with a little problem that I have been leaving the horns for days without being able to solve it …
It turns out that I have caught a z83 mini pc with 4gb ram and 64gb emmc with windows 10 and I was thinking of putting the batocera in it, the idea is to put everything in the emmc (without external usb) with the bootloader menu … after going crazy and not being able to install the batocera on a partition, I have tried to start directly the batocera.img file with gru2win as I had already achieved on another machine with Windows 7 by BIOS / MBR through grub2win and the file batocera-hd-edition.gz with the Grub.cfg commands:
set DISC = 0
set PART = 2
set DIR = /batocera
set FILE = batocera-5.21-x86-32-20190326.img
# NO CHANGE
loopback loop (hd $ DISC, msdos $ PART) $ DIR / $ FILE
EXEC = "disc = $ DISC part = $ PART dir = $ DIR file = $ FILE"
linux (loop, msdos1) / boot / linux $ EXEC console = tty3 quiet loglevel = 0 vt.global_cursor_default = 0
initrd (hd $ DISC, msdos $ PART) $ DIR / batocera-hd-edition.gz
The first problem was the GPT and the partition for win10 …
Well once configured … it told me that there was no compatible video mode and it started in blind mode.
After googling / fiddling with the grub config, I pass that screen but it stays black without leaving the batocera logo or starting …
At first I thought it would be due to graphics drivers or something … which was my surprise that I tried to start with 5.21 × 32 batocera through usb, the logo came out but it did not start.
So I tried batocera 5.26 × 64 for usb and everything was correct and without problems …
After a thousand tests with the same results I have come to the conclusion that the x32 versions do not start in the device I do not know why … only those of x64 working by usb.
Well, going back to dual boot, I try with batocera x64.img versions 5.21 or 5.26 and I only get a black screen, without leaving the batocera logo loading.
My question is whether the batocera-hd-edition.gz file is exclusive for x32 versions and does not work for x64 versions that are the ones supported by the z83 or not valid for EFI / GPT….
Any help to be very well received, thank you very much
