Quoting starkers, reply 16Not to worry, mate, I'm just glad that RND was able to assist with the RAM. Hopefully somebody will be able to come up with a SATA drive to help out.
I was gonna buy an SSD for my lappy, and send him my lappy HDD, but the truck quit on me and now I'm having to use my money to fix it. [e digicons]:'([/e]
You can't help that, so hopefully somebody else will pitch in and lend a hand. I already handed out the last of the SATA drives I had. All I have now are some IDE's.... which BTW, can be converted to SATA with a relatively inexpensive [$10 - $15] adapter/card.
Now there's an idea... how about somebody donates an old IDE they no longer need, and kona gets the adapter to convert it to SATA. If nobody in the US can or will do it, I have a 160 gig Seagate IDE that I could post, then all that would be needed is the IDE to SATA adapter.
In fact, kona, if nobody else offers and you can't afford an adapter, either, I'll get you an adapter to go with it as well. Just PM me if this would help you out and I'll start sorting out the necessary steps, okay!
