Is it possible to install the x86 version in the RockPIX emmc? The nand-sata-install command doesn't solve it.

This is my Rockpi X, running from eMMC:

I have re-installed Armbian on my Laptop last week and I had to fix this:
which means image build from sources will probably works, but you can change this on your OS and try.

But I don't understand how I should do it.

1. Start with a brand new UEFI image https://www.armbian.com/uefi-x86/

2. Flash to USB, go to Bios, change to boot from USB

3. Boot, make 1st run config, then optionally erase eMMC flash partitions to force installer to create new ones

4. Run armbian-install, choose install to eMMC, select second partition when asked for where to install (it should only give you option for installing to 2nd as 1st is small FAT EFI partition where you can't install rootfs too)

5. Reboot and it should work. I just tried this on my test device which is very similar to Rockpi X (UP Square)
