Thanks Paolo,

Then only the issue regarding the pcbios/optionrom stuff remains ;-)

make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'multiboot.bin', needed by 'all'.  Stop.

Hi Howard,

one solution for this issue is to uncomment the following line in 

rem To activate windows native symlinks uncomment next line
set MSYS=winsymlinks:nativestrict

Then tell Windows 10 it's okay to create symlinks without elevated rights. Here 
is a link with a description how to do this.

I think since commit bf708f3c4a "optionrom: simplify Makefile" 
pc-bios/optionrom/Makefile in your build directory has to be a symbolic link. Without 
'set MSYS=winsymlinks:nativestrict' msys2 ln -s copies the Makefile instead of creating a 
symbolic link.

Wow thanks for this. I had the same issue as Howard, and I can confirm that this fixes the problem for me. Having said that it was quite fiddly to get this working correctly - is there any reason why https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2020-09/msg06997.html still can't be merged?
