retropie 4.5.1 Not booting, black screen in pi4 Model B



  • Hello, i am new on raspberry. I followed the installation guide of the official website: https://retropie.org.uk/docs/First-Installation/
    but when I started my raspberry pi4, the screen is completely black. The LED flashes green about 3 times quickly and stays red. I have tried with the image Raspberry Pi 0/1 and Raspberry Pi 2/3 without any result. The raspberry is connected by HDMI to a normal pc monitor, raspbian boots perfectly but there is no way back. I really need help. Thanks

    The Pi4 is not supported by RetroPie yet - either with the image(s) provided on the download page or through the manual installation (over Raspbian).
