Hi,

 

Send me a Privater message and I'll send you some templates I have. However, there is a minimum quantity of boards you have to order.

 

2. My mistake should read PS2 not USB.

 

3. it's best to use the PS2 connections when your modifing the BIOS. Some USB keyboards don't work. You need a simple wired USB keyboard. If they have a builtin hub or wireless, you may have issues in the BIOS. But if you don't plan on doing any BIOS mods and just constantly have a VGA monitor connected, your fine with USB keyboards and mice.

 

4. Yes I soldered the wires and crimped them with pliers, but you can use the crimper suggested in the link.

5. on the EX49x boxes, there is a jumper to set. But the previous versions don't need a jumper. I don't know about the Acer boxes. You can leave the jumper on.

 

You have to be comfortable taking apart you server, it not very simple. There are a few videos around.

Sure, go ahead, I'm not insulted. My goal was just to get them out there and not worry about quality, unless they are to blurry. Some times the flash makes it hard to see stuff.

OK, I'll prep something. My goal is to give you tips that will let you get even better shots with virtually no extra effort. IOW, to work with what you already have and in the kind of timeframe you already use.
