@voljega I found the Roms, they were saved onto the windows hdd instead of the flash drive. The issue I'm having now is no boot. Saying something about not able to write no space. So since things were saved to the hdd I'm trying to reset with grub but I don't think its possible.
The only time anything like this happened to me was after editing the config with word/notepad. Using word++ I've never had a problem and more recently I just use recalbox manager via my phone. I know word/notepad used to cause the config to corrupt
