@zing Thank you again. I'm starting to think I'll give up. Problems just keep piling on each other. I managed to connect it to the network by using an external adaptor (so maybe it was a driver problem). I even resolved the screen size issue in a bizzare way: I tried everything the guide said, then I accidentally left both HDMI and VGA cable inserted and I discovered that this combination makes the VGA works (don't ask me why tho). I then started to test it. No problems until I got to nintendo 64. It was just too slow. That's when I realized I was playing in HD and that surely was the problem. And that's when I understood there was no way of reducing in game resolution. I tried a couple of guides, changing the videoglobalmode setting, but it just didn't work (my config file sais about videoglobalmode "don't change this setting, this version does not support video switch" or something like that.). So, in the end, I'm out of ideas. I may use it just to play 2D games, but my plan was to have n64 and PSX games in it. What a pity

@zing Hello and thanks for your help. In the end I succesfully installed Recalbox in my internal HD by using clonezilla and copying it in the HD before the first boot. Now it works, but I haven't tested it yet. I have now a different, more urgent problem, for I think I'll start a new topic: I cannot manage to connect recalbox to the WiFi, and that means I cannnot access to config with another pc (I tried with command line, but I have too little expertise in the field and I really don't know what I'm doing). I insert my WiFi name and password, it says "WiFi enabled" and that's it. I can wait, I can reboot, I can exit options and come back, it doesn't matter, whatever I do it still says Not Connected, it doesn't give me an IP or anything. As I said, I think I'll open a new topic, but I wanted to let you know how my "noob quest" was progressing (having a Job is not helping). With the WiFi problem resolved, the screen issue should be a piece of cake, and then I'm gonna start testing some emulators.
RE: Installare Recalbox sull'hard disk interno di un pc (no live, no raspberry)
@c64 Ciao, sto tentando la stessa impresa. Posso chiederti precisazioni sulla procedura che hai usato? Mi sarebbe molto utile!
A noob quest
Hello everyone, I'm trying to turn an old notebook (olibook s1350) into a retrogaming console and recalbox was my first choice. However I need advice about this two things:
- The screen is not cut, but it appears as a small window in the bottom left corner. I tried to adjust it, but i wasn't able to. I have to specify, the notebook doesn't have a screen anymore (i removed it years ago) and the video signal goes to a philips tv monitor via VGA clable.
- Is there a way to actually install recalbox on the hard disk (like lakka) or does it always have to boot via USB?
Thank you for your help and please forgive my broken english
