I think it was December 8th or 9th. I was reading email on YAM (OS4.1FE) when suddenly a guru popped up. I have no idea what it said, because another one, the most common one, PSI I think--an option is to ignore further ones of the type--came up on top of it, and I couldn't move it off because the mouse was dead. Attempts to reboot that day and the next couple of days brought up the AEON AmigaONE X1000 screen, but nothing more no matter how long I waited. Soon I didn't even see that anymore.amigasociety wrote:Sorry to hear about the X1K.
May I asked what happened?
Yes, but unless I get the whole system, case and all, I don't want to lose the data I have on the old drive. That's why I haven't made up my mind on which to buy, just motherboard or the works, which includes a new drive all set up.Odds are the swap of the X1K to X5K is a clean fit but the OS used on X5K is newer so your old OS may not boot on newer motherboard, plus yes wondering if CFE to uBoot has issues.
But you can always wipe clean and start over putting a fresh OS on the new drive and then see if other drives can be read.
Something I will need to consider, too! I have three HDD and the DVD on my X1000.Note... X5K has 2 SATA connection so unless you add a SATA card, you can't add tons of drives.
For me, DVD and HDD take up both on-board SATA.
I need to get a SATA card to add more later.
I appreciate this very much. You address some concerns I only started to think about last night, and bring up some new ones.tonyw wrote:The motherboard is the same size, so it will fit easily. However, there are some differences:
Maybe not too important, since I would need new cards for those slots anyway.* The X5K has different PCI-e and PCI slots.
I knew that, but had the stupid idea that RAM came with the motherboard. I'd need to add* The X5K can't use the RAM DIMMs out of the X1K (different speed).
I'm not sure where I would get the CD. amigaonthelake.com offers OS4.1FE for Emulation, for Classic, and for X1000. Maybe the X1000 would work? If so, I may even have it, or close enough, already.* ... You would have to replace the kernel at a minimum, or simply install the system from CD again. If you are prepared to do some hunting, you could boot the Install CD on the X5K, then find the X5K version of the kernel on the CD and install it yourself in Kickstart/.
I trust SoundWave 5.1 PCI for AmigaOne X5000 $25.99 should work, unless amigaonthelake is lying with that "for ... X5000."* The X5K does not have built-in audio, so you will need an audio card if you want to hear audio. Do not buy a card with a CMI8738 chip...
The dealer in question says, "Whilst the network driver is still under development we will provide a free RTL 8139 PCI ethernet card to each customer."* The X5K does not yet have a working device driver for the on-board Ethernet, so you will need an Ethernet card. The Rtl8139 and 8169 are dirt cheap and work well.
[/quote]Amigaonthelake doesn't seem to offer either of those (I have the 3114 in my X1000), but I guess that wouldn't be an immediate concern.* The X5K has only two SATA ports, so you will probably want to fit an SiI3512 or SiI3112. Steer clear of the SiI3114 as we have a problem with that card on the X5K.
