I know. I know. Just read forum posts, watch tutorial videos, and research before you ask questions. I have.
I just bought a Raspberry Pi a few days ago. I only want this to build the Emulation Station for gaming. I followed all of steps exactly. I properly formatted my SD card, I downloaded all the proper files and images in the tutorials, I used win32 and successfully wrote images to the SD card. When I put SD card in the Pi, nothing. It doesn’t boot. Just a read light. So I have a stupid question.
1. Do I install NOOBS first then add Retropie or do I need to install NOOBS at all?
I am working with:
512 Raspberry Pi B
USB wireless keyboard/mouse
I have a plethora of controllers ranging from RETRObit adapters, retro link controllers, and a PS3 USB.
I even returned the Raspberry Pi thinking it was defective and literally got the replacement right now. I am afraid to do anything to this one until, I know if I am doing something wrong. I appreciate any and all feedback in advance.
Have you made sure the SD card is actually properly inserted? I had that issue once where I thought I had put the card all the way in but it didn’t boot so as per tech support 101 I “unplugged it and plugged it back in”. Turns out the SD card wasn’t making contact
