Step by Step
Prepare a clean A1200 baseboard and install the shielding.
Insert the A1200 motherboard, making sure you fold over
all of those dangerous metal sharp tabs. Note that I have
already inserted the EZ keyboard adaptor.
Next up I changed the old 3.0 ROMS for the new 3.1 ROMS
If you intend doing any serious upgrading you really need
the later ROM chips. I keep the paper handy to remind me
which way round the chips go.
I then installed the scandoubler flicker fixer, which enables
me to use a PC monitor. In this case a DELL monitor
I tried the board out with an 8MB RAM board to start with
just in case the board went pop. This enabled me the opportunity
to install the Apollo libraries. I then swapped cards and installed
the Apollo 1260 68060 with 32MB RAM.
I then formatted a 1GB hard drive and set up two IDE 3.5"
drives off the 4 Way Buffered Interface
Next up will be the CD and the OS upgrade
