Hi @Remylenain,

Sorry for the delay, didn't have much time this past days, thanks for the new info, I will try again this days or maybe in the weekend, I will let you know if I solve the problem.

Thanks again Wink
No problem, I hope this will work Wink

My orangepi plus 2e doesn't boot too.

I've the same problem: oragepi boots without sd card but with sd inserted no.

My sd card is formated in fat32

What file must I change to boot right?

EDIT: I've tried my old rc.local file (it works ok in retrorangepi 4.2) and boot fails too:

if [ -b "/dev/sda1"]; then
sudo mount /dev/mmcblk1p1 /home/pi/RetroPie -o rw,user,exec,umask=0000,uid=pi,gid=pi
elif [ -b "/dev/mmcblk1p1"]; then
sudo mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /home/pi/RetroPie/roms -o rw,user,exec,umask=0000,uid=pi,gid=pi

EDIT 2: All It's too stranger:

I've running armdesktop from retrorangepi menu.
I've inserted sd card and it's mount to /media/pi/ORANGEPI (mi sd card is labeled as "ORANGEPI")

Then I'm modify the rc.local again (I've eliminated my old 4.2 version lines) and I've write:

sudo mount /media/pi/ORANGEPI /home/pi/RetroPie/roms -o rw,user,exec,umask=0000,uid=pi,gid=pi

and retroragepi continues without booting.

It's likes retrorangepi tries to boot directly from SD and not from EMMC and then mount the SD.


The SD was used to copy retrorangepi 4.3 image. After that, I format SD to fat32 from Windows but some partition
must still in it. Format the sd card with SD Card Formatted solved the problem.

rc.local file now have this lines:

if [ -b "/dev/sda1"]; then
sudo mount /dev/mmcblk1p1 /home/pi/RetroPie
elif [ -b "/dev/mmcblk1p1"]; then
sudo mount -t vfat /dev/mmcblk0p1 /home/pi/RetroPie/roms
Hi again,

zarkon, thanks for the new info, I will try it in this days because still not working for me, hope this fix it one and for all.
Hi @Remylenain,

Finally did it,

Formated the SD to fat32.

This command didn't work at all

cp -R /home/pi/RetroPie/* /dev/mmcblk0p1/

so I used this

cp -R /home/pi/RetroPie/* /media/pi/SD_card_name

Modified rc.local with this before exit 0

sudo mount -t vfat /dev/mmcblk0p1 /home/pi/RetroPie
