Now I have blown it.
I am one of the "lucky" ones that had a cut pin 25 on the ide header. Following advice elsewhere, I used a very small exacto knife to cut out the plastic around the stub of pin 25 in order to make enough room to wirewrap the stub.
Unfortunately, I cut too much plastic and completely removed pin 25/stub accidentally. Worse, when it popped out, it pulled the trace up with it. Worse, the pin 25 stub broke off from the thin trace.
So, now I just have a piece of the circuit board trace (which looks like a very very thin wire) sticking up where it used to connect to pin 25 of the ide header (and a big empty hole where pin 25 used to be).
I have been able to solder a very small wirewrap wire to the trace, but what next? (1) the trace sticking out of the board is bare copper, and could easily short out other components so I will somehow have to seal it. (2) Which wire on the Badflash cable do I connect to? 25? 26? (Also, how do I install the Badflash header -- it seems to have to connectors at one end -- which one do I use or do I connect the middle two rows? Does the red wire still go with pin 1 on the motherboard? Badflash.com is dead so I cannot get instructions).
Any other ideas?
Also, CN19 sure looks like a mounting pcb trace for a floppy drive header... anyone tried that?
