Just got my Hard Drive Mounted in my GCTP. I used a very simple aluminum bracket. I have ordered a Custom Cable from
BadFlash that will allow installation of an Internal Shark Avatar Drive. If your not familiar with these, they are
250MB removable (Zip Like) storage. Normally in a External Parallel Form Factor, this drive has been removed rom the
case. I noticed it had a standard 44 pin header...Hmmm... Dammitt, it worked. I have not measured the height of the
drive, but it fits PERFECTLY in the spot where the Modem WAS. As of this writing, the only thing left to do is:
1. Nibble the RF shield where it covers the Opening of the external port.
2. Get my Cable from BadFlash.
3. Fab a few angled Aluminum mounting brackets.
If We ever get into the BIOS, would'nt it be a surprise if it were bootable...??
I have posted a number if images here:
The Mounting bracket itself is still a bit rough, but gives enough clearance, and is still BELOW the level of the
heat Sink. Also check out the Color of the Drive Face.... Could'nt get any Closer. <g>
I Did not have to nibble the Stand Support piece on the back of the RF shield, I placed the drive just outside enough
to miss it.
So Far So Good... I will post the end result later.
