Upgrading several Risc PC systems
Monday 17th February 2003, 7:30pm

Unfortunately, we still have the following problems:
We also carried out an upgrade from RISC OS 3.5 to RISC OS 3.7 on a member's Risc PC, in preparation for installing a StrongARM in his system as well. However, it turned out his computer had the dreaded timing problems, and would boot quite happily with an ARM610 processor card, but not with the StrongARM (we confirmed the StrongARM card itself was OK by trying it in the ROUGOL Risc PC).
At this meeting, we intend to address the problems with the ROUGOL Risc PC as follows:
We also plan to address the problems with the member's Risc PC (still awaiting StrongARM upgrade) as follows:
Changing motherboards without buying a new one does mean that we run the risk of having the same problem if we upgrade the ROUGOL Risc PC with a StrongARM card at a later date. However, two members have very kindly offered the possibility of donating an alternative motherboard to ROUGOL at some point in the future; and we could also even consider undertaking the recommended modifications to the motherboard itself (removing the C32 capacitor).
Neil Spellings has agreed to attend the meeting and oversee the upgrades, so you may be able to ask further questions about Aemulor along the way!
We're still looking for the following extras for the ROUGOL Risc PC:
