    So got a raspberry pi 2 yesterday and put retropie on it and a bunch of various roms.

    Showed it to a friend who is into old games like me and he wants one and wants me to do one for him. Then im sure others will want one to

    My question is can I simply copy my SD card and put it into a second RasPi2 and have have it carry over the retropie and roms settings etc.. Id probly have to do an image copy of the sd card im assuming but not sure what that will carry over.

    Its not hard to set up a new Pi but just takes time to load retro and the roms the settings, run scraper and all that. Be great if I can do a simple copy over job

    You can use win32diskimager to essentially clone your SD card
