I bought an IA from eBay, and the device have had 5 bad block into the flash memory ...
The seller don't want to say if he try to install windows, but it is certainly the
final result of this installation !!!!
I've buy a SANDISK compactflash card memory, and I will try to sold the flash chip
into the device ....
I will send a post here, if it should worked
Actually, an interesting mod idea for an IA-1 with a dead internal flash might be to simply disable the device by lifting a few pins - then adding two (yes Virgina, two) CF devices via the CF slot. I have a dual CF reader which was custom manufactured for me by Mesa Electronics (specifically for building an OS load for my IA-1). I've often thought about getting a reverse CF adapter (the one used for hooking a standard 2.5" HDD to the CF slot), and mounting the dual adapter to the back of the case.
Might be a bit ugly, but imagine stuffing a 512MB CF and a 512MB Microdrive in the same system. :)
