Why Berryboot?

The more normal ways (in no particular order) to get Raspbian Buster are
1. NOOBS
2. PINN
3. Plain Raspbian with Balena Etcher
4. Plain Raspbian with the RPF protoype Image writer
Note: Any requirement to use a crystal ball or mind reading will result in me ignoring your question.

I'll do your homework for you for a suitable fee.

NOOBS and PINN give you a supported multi-boot.
Berryboot fails the KISS principle.

It's trivial to have boot code on SDCard and a rootfs on USB. With RPi3B, 3B+ & 3A+ it's trivial to boot from USB.

Would still argue it's the only option, if you want to be able to add & remove OSes later...


To answer the TS's question.
Berryboot downloads the OS images from sourceforge.
If the sourceforge mirror it is using does not have good connectivity to your own provider, download the OS image manually from the website https://sourceforge.net/projects/berryb ... os_images/ (where you can choose another mirror that suits you better), put it on USB stick, and add it to Berryboot from USB.

Use PINN it's the best supported. https://github.com/procount/pinn it uses the standard RPF/RPT downloads for the three flavours of Raspbian, it includes a bunch of other well supported OSes.

Depends on model of Raspberry Pi SBC, the 4B is not yet supported by Retropie Stable Release ( there is a beta release though https://files.retropie.org.uk/images/weekly )
You may need to undertake a Custom Install:
