Ok, Got the upload pic issue sorted..
Got my kit yesterday..
Banged together a basic 'bench pc' with bits lying around
(P4 D 3.4 / 1Gb Ram / 80Gb Sata Hdd / DVD Rom)
Went through the install, followed the instructions, very concise, good work however a couple of descrepencies from my load / experience.
Downloaded the ROM's.. Reboot, Bingo, it works - first time..!
Picked up my new hardware today
(Intel DG41CN mATx Mainboard / Intel C2D E75002.93Ghz CPU / 2Gb DDR2-800 Ram)
Connected it all up and it worked off yesterdays / different hardware image. Is this correct..? Will Ubuntu run like this..? I know that nowadays with Windows, newer Genuine Intel boards will detect and run older images from older Genuine Intel boards (from about i915 chipsets onwards)
Got out the trusty angle grinder and the cordless drill, hacked about for a hour or two and made the motherboard fit into the original Pin2K box. Not a beautiful job, but hey, after drilling out a few rivets to expand on the width of the box, a few cuts with the angle grinder so I could slot in the motherboard with the Hdd snugged in behind I got it in there..!
Pics tell a 1000 words, like I say, not beautiful, but certainly practicle..Note the original Atari Cone button used as a Reset switch and a PC power LED over to the right.
As above and as per my other post, I'm having a few issues with playfield power / illumination. Tomorrows another day, will deal with it then..
All in all, happy that the mainboard 'just' fitted in..! A good evenings work..l
