Installing the A508IDE board in the A2000

                      

  

This A2000 itself is a Rev 6.2 board with KS3.1 already in it. I had to check out the A2000 schematics to find out the options for connecting the 2 wires from the board and as it happens i got very lucky. (You'll see further down).

 

Here is a picture of the board showing the LED cable (Red/Black) that utilizes the A2000's LED.  I removed the solder blob from the fastmem board, put in the 2 pin header and away it went :).

 

Here is how i connected the 2 wires to the motherboard.  Using the schematic i found that both required connections are available on the motherboard risers so no soldering to the motherboard required...

Here is a pic of the 2 wire mini header i made that connects to Pins 17 and 19 on the header are next to each other on the riser so i could simply push in my cutoff board at pins 17 (OVR) and 19 (Int2).  A little bit of hot glue to make it semi permanent and all set

 Notice that the PSU and drive cage is back in place and there is clear space. 2 sets of risers were used for the board to clear the motherboard components.
