Hi all, again.
I am assembling my parts to put together my Geneve as a working system, and will start my refurbishment of the board soon. I picked up a cheap PEB on eBay with the disk. disk controller card, RS232, and 32K installed for $100, all working too. I got an XT keyboard, and the SCART Genie with an HDMI upscaler.
I do have a few questions for the Geneve gurus:
Can I use the TI disk controller as is? Can/should I do the 80 track upgrade to the card? Will that work with the original TI disk drive?
What kind of mouse does the Geneve use?
I understand that I can't use the 32K card with the Geneve. However, what PEB cards can I use with the Geneve? What ones should I seek out for a good Geneve system?
Should I do the 2 amp upgrade to the PEB, or will the stock power levels for the PEB work fine for the Geneve? I do plan on getting rid of the noisy fan and replacing it with a quieter one.
Any Geneve modifications I should consider a "must have"?
