One of the reasons I love this place is that is that i learn something new every day, thanks for the pictures!
Is there any chance that you could scan your manual so we can add it to the installation manual I've posted in the peripherals forum?
Any way to reduce current draw would be important:
__Check out the Developer Notes and User Manuals for the IIsi for maximum power draw, I'll check Designing Cards And Drivers for same.
__ Switch to as new an Ethernet as will run on the max OS that will run with your accelerator.
____I'd suggest watching eBay etc for one of the Futura cards that'll give you better Video and Ethernet at the same time.
______When you don't have a cable attached to the vampire video connector, you'll have full, unbuffered use of Bank A's measly 1 MB of RAM
____Any full length NuBus card designed before the IIsi was headed to a Mac with a much beefier PSU than the IIsi.
__Switch to a PowerBook SCSI Drive for booting to draw the least amount of power possible.
____Best bet, boot from an external HDD with none installed in the IIsi
____Run your drive in an external case or power it from a secondary PSU during your next round of tests.
____Take a gander at JDW's[quote=http://68kmla.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=17229]SE/30 booting off CF success [/quote] thread, which I haven't read as yet, but will soon.
____Consider buying an inexpensive IDE or SATA/IDE <-> USB adapter just for the aux PSU included and wire it directly to AC inside the box.
____Consider Hacking an ATX PSU into the PSU shell of one of IIsi as I'll doing for my [url]SuperIIsiHack™[/url] (linkage missing or unposted?)
It looks like I need to pull together a lot of widely separated references into another Hacks topic!IIsiColorPivotII_PDS_Card_HackProject™
[url]ink to Q700 PSU running a IIsi thread[/url]
My aim is to mount at least the CP2IIsi and an Ethernet card underneath
the IIsi MoBo . . .
. . . while running a Radius Rocket with MaxRAM in the NuBus adapter.
I haven't done the SubterraneanCardHack yet, gotta source some solder paste
for that one.
Right after that's done, I'll be doing the NuBus/PDS Cards running simultaneously test.
in search of the ROM IMAGE of a later Mac for dougg3's SIMM Card Adapter that'll increase the IIsi's limit of three Pseudo Slot ID's.
gotta run to work, I'll edit in anything I think of later.
p.s. If anyone has a GREAT source for ChipQuick and Solder Paste, please PM me!
