I saw a thread here on the forums that you can install Batocera on your HDD without using a SATA to USB cable. Unfortunately, instructions are a bit hard to understand and no one replied when I asked around the thread. So, yeah, is there any way I can do that. Would really appreciate it if someone could help me with it. Thanks!
In Linux (Ubuntu) I used the command "dd"
sudo dd if = /batocera.img of = /dev/sdb
if=/batocera.img = Represents the image to be copied.
of=/dev/sdb = Represents the destination disk that will receive the image
jdorigao Thanks for the reply! Is there a way I can do this in Windows? My laptop's not capable of running Linux for some reason. :/
in the menu, found how to run a command
as far as i remember, you can run the xterm terminal with its path to /usr/bin/xterm
then, from here you can type commands
like wget http://..../img.gz to download a batocera image,
then gunzip the_file.gz to unzip it
then dd to write the image.
however, i've to do it really to give the correct commands.
i will at least make a script to make it easier.
nadenislamarre I'll probably wait for the script then. I'm not that technically inclined when it comes to running commands and stuff but I really want to turn one of the laptops lying around here into a dedicated batocera device. Anyway, thanks for all the hard work!
