Default Re: Wresting with Deepfreeze and SurferQuest

Well, I hooked up another IDE drive and a different power supply and it was able to boot from that CD and reinstall XP. Seems to be fine with the supplied power supply now. The motherboard itself is all Pannys, none bulging and the power supply is a little HiPro unit that doesn't have any visible bulging, but they're all Ltec with some little Nichicons, so I may go through and replace the Ltec's. The BIOS revision is A00 which indicates it is the original BIOS, so it may just need a BIOS update to get the USB booting properly.

Other than that its doing what I wanted it to do, which is to act as a wireless receiver/router for some old PPC Macs.
