I'm new to the BBS and have had a GTC sitting on my shelf for a year at least and now that I've finally gotten around to working on it, I realise the soldering is beyond me cuz of limited experience. So far after reading everything I've noticed my only alternatives if I want to run XP on the GTC are:
1)CF to HDD for 35+7
2)Bigger CF (cant fit XP unless I get a 1gig+ microdrive?)
3)Forget about XP and go with a smaller/diffrent OS
4)Buy a newer version of the GTC offa someone
5)Pay someone to solder for me
So far #5 looks like its gonna be the only way. I have already an old Laptop harddrive and replacement keyboard. Any offers for $ soldering for me? I don't have the header or ide cable tho.
