Hi everyone, I have a recapped and ultrasonic cleaned LC475 that will work just fine with no RAM stick installed, but when one is, it'll do the death chime.
Info: Board was not tested before recap, has no PRAM battery (a 10-pack is on the way though), I have been using the turn on, quickly turn off and back on again method to get it working with no battery.
Yes, it's a SATA drive with a SATA-IDE adapter. It's a helium filled HGST drive that had been physically knocked hard while it was running, so its SMART status says it's failing, and the write speed is about 5 MB/sec (read is about 200 MB/sec). However, I wrote zeros, then random data, then zeros again to every sector on the drive without any issues, so I think the drive itself is usable.
Since 5 MB/sec is faster than a Quadra will do, I figured that's a good use for it
