'Hacking' Fast track IDE cards - FrostyTech.com 'Hacking' Fast track IDE cards
Thu Nov 23, 2000 | 5:42P| PermaLink
"What it boils down to is the BIOS pins 2 & 3 have to be cut and then bent up to allow 2 wires to be soldered on - the two wires are then soldered to another part of the card (IDE2 pins 33 & 35 on my card). Then the BIOS is flashed - after that it's a simple job of connecting 150 OHM resistors between IDE1 Pin 36 & ground + Pin 37 & ground). That's the theory, so what happened in practice? Ok, I cut the BIOS pins 2 & 3, and boy was that hard to deliberately vandalise a working card - but needs must! So I then carefully (honest) bent pin 3 up - that was ok, so I then bent pin 2 up and that was OK.. Then for some daft reason I decided it would work better if the pins were at different angles (mad idiot :) - So I carefully tried to bend pin 2 back down a tiny bit.. And DISASTER pin 2 came clean off! The leg was broken off from 1-2mm inside the bios chip - that's a write off. One dead card may it rest in pieces!"
