|the 'paper-clip' trick involves shorting together two jumper pins that reset the BIOS. originally, folks completely disassembled their IA-1, removed and re-positioned the jumper to reset the BIOS, then re-placed the jumper and re-assembled the unit. a bit of work, but fun for some folks. more enterprising folks figured out that you didn't have to 100% dissasemble the unit, you could crack it open on the side, and use a paper clip to short the RF shield against one of the two pins, achieving the same result with far less dis-re-assembly effort. |
if the IA-2 has a similar BIOS jumper, the procedure might be similar. this type of 3-pin jumper is usually located near the CMOS battery or near the BIOS chip. i'm sure other IA-2 users will appreciate if you make pictures available.
some reasons hackers like the IA-1: smaller size and LCD flat screen
what I wish it had: real IDE header, integrated NIC
