Buuut, the installation failed. The disk was spinning but non sound from the head’s arm. I tried 4 more times an finally the arm got unstuck and everything worked fine. Installed win 3.1 too XD
Now, I had no 5 pin din keyboard, but they are identical to ps2 keyboard, the only difference is the shape if the connector. So i took an old logitec keyboard, cut the minidin, and lapped a din plug. Still nothing from the disk drives tough. Than, again, unplugged the controller isa card, cleaned the contacts... still nothing. Unplugged all the ribbon cables, cleaned contacts... and finally the floppy came back to life.
Unplugged the vga isa card, cleaned the contacts and finally got something:
Cleaned everything, plugged the cord, turned on. The power supply fan started spinning... and nothing else appened. No beeps, no boops, nothing ob screen, floppy and hd dead silent. In the end I found that the problem was that hd drawer thingy. Removed that, and connected the hd directly the hd started spinning and I got this:
It was stored in a very dump basement for... maybe 20 years and the result is... HUHG
Now, if this isn't the coolest thing you've seen today then you need to close the refrigerator. It's an animation of how bridges were built in Central Europe in the middle-ages.
tired of people misusing "science" to make epic gotcha points. so, a rant
first of all science is not a belief system
there's no bible, you do not take a list of things in a book and have faith that they are the truth. science is not about faith. science isn't even about truth!
science is about doing controlled experiments to develop models of natural processes
the key thing is that everything "science says" is backed by experimental results. science doesn't actually say anything. science doesn't require you to believe in the theory. just that the experiments were carried out as described.
even then, the theory is not objective truth. the theory is a _model_ that helps us predict something that happens based on the previous observations of stuff that happens. nothing in science can ever be proven "true". but that's kind of irrelevant because we don't ask that theories be "true" in the first place. we only ask that theories help us understand and predict the wacky stuff that happens around us. that's the point
As expected the battery is spot welded and soldered to the board. I made a battery holder with my 3d printer. A bit junky but it works. :/
