@lylehaze

Some interesting "tips" in that article.

How about YOU do the "uAOne owners kit" -- you certainly sound like you know what you're doing.

Thanks, but I spent all my "discretionary funds" on the board.
I'm too poor to buy anything else!

I hope the article helps someone else, I spent a lot of time
trying to find all the right details.

I regret that I couldn't find UK sources as well, but I'll leave
that to those who live there.

Welcome to the fold :)

Ah well, take that one and the one for my A1 and
you have some good info for the build-it-yourself
crowd.

http://amigairc.amigarevolution.com/micro.html

http://amigairc.amigarevolution.com/kinder.html

Another fun project is taking the ide header and
getting a CF adapter to boot from a 1G CF card.
But that is another story entirely.

Another part of this that would naturally follow is
the OS4 install, step by step.

Good article!

I had also the same or similar problems installing my A1.
As there was NO documentation delivered with the board.
I had to turn to AW.net and the great Amiga community

The AmigaIRC Micro page was also good help.
Wonder why these kind of pictures aren't on Eyetech's site?

A week after I bought my A1 I got hold of a A1 manual (pdf)
which explains alot of the jumpers and pins including the CPU
board. I'm wondering if it's possible to get the 750GX up to
1GHz with the right cooling?!?

Nice write up Lyle.

Also wanted to say your right about the documentation on the serial port being
wrong. I mentioned this in a thread
(http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=9665&forum=14)
back in January and told some of the folks that are making wiring diagrams
available but wasn't listened to because the documentation said otherwise.

Hopefully your article will make the problem more visable.

Great work!

Wierd, FireFox shows the article ok, M$ Exploder cuts the last few letters off the right hand side of the page. Odd

@lylehaze

Great article - it's pretty scary that there is so much scope for error, and so many trivial things (which you take for granted with a PC motherboard) missing. Not good at all.

Someone definitely needs to get that A1 Owners Kit put together...

(Edit: @ treblesix - yes, but only on the front page. Very odd... )

@treblesix

IE displays it correctly. Here is the code.
You can't have a table of width 647 inside a cell of width 598.


td width="598"
table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" height="100%"
tr valign="top"
td width="647"

I really don't understand why webmasters don't use "100%".

Good Morning!

@Kindergrip: Thanks. Your page made my build possible. I hope you don't mind the link to your article at the top of mine. Now how can I convince you to change your pinouts for the serial port?

@Samwel: 1 Ghz? Be sure to keep it cool.

@KTadd: Because the original docs are wrong, we'll probably be fighting misinformation for a long time. Oh well, I've got mine!

@Trixie: That's what dealers are for! Building your own is not for everyone. There seems to be a lot of people that are building for the first time though.

@Thread: I's nice to wake up this morning and find my article well-received. That's a pretty good start to my day. Thanks!

Still strange, as Explorer tends to be more slack with syntax, and tend to display as it wants, rather than what the code wants. Not closing tags and such in IE, usually still displays it ok, yet FireFox doesn't usually, as it seems more strict on the syntax.

You also need to change your vcore if you overclock the cpu.

I run my XE at 1000Mhz with a nice cooler. The cpu is a 933 one.

@Elwood

I already fixed it before I saw your post, but thanks for pointing it out. I don't know where those fixed numbers came in, as I try to use 100% and such. It's much easier. The only fixed numbers I use should be on the outside of the framed area to keep the site aligned and centered.

I guess it's obvious which browser I used to preview it with.

C'mon, the personal attacks & constant picking on Helgis are really getting old!
