first i would like to thanks folks at this site for helping me hack/modify my IO. here goes... :
got my IO 3 weeks ago from CC.. it's V4 with Rise266 no goo and pins are intact. upgrade the bios, put new fan in, ide cable. blah blah..
first attempt with Toshiba Mk1926FCV (814MB) CYL1579, H16, S63: DIDN'T work
second attempt with Toshiba MK2720FC (1358MB) CYL2633, H16, S63: DIDN'T work
third attempt with Toshiba 2.1GB forgot the model number WORKS! (it's inside the unit and don't feel like taking it out)
system memory 64MB (was used in tecra 8000)
for both the first and second attempt machine boot but do not go to c: prompt may it's the hard drive? (these 3 drives have the same setup and are BOOTABLE on diff.. machine before i put them into the IO)
setup and installs WinME have no problem it's detects everything accept the video card and the modem.. i have to d/l the video driver (was be able to do 800X600 with option for hi-color and true color and 1 other thing) and i have to manually add the modem into COM1. the sound on the IO is somewhat OK.. i prefer any 3 piece system. setup and installs Hauppage winTV usb (latest driver from their website).. picture quality is SO SO..
so far this is the best investment.. now i can have digital picture frame+TV for my bedroom wall
thanks you guys
