Hi,

my 486 Build is now nearly finished

- 486DX4 100Mhz AMD WB SV8T
- Lanner Industrial SlotCPU Mainboard
- 256Kb L2
- 64Mb (2x32Mb FPM Ram)
- EIZO Tseng ET4000 with 1Mb (ISA)
- NE2000 Clone Realtek 8019
- Soundblaster 16 Vibra
- 1Gb CF Card
- 1,44Mbyte Floppydrive
- LPT ZIP 100 Drive
- Windows 95A, IE 5.5

Sadly the case is nearly 6cm too short to fit Terratec Soundsystem EWS64 XL inside.

The ISA Backplane has 2 missing contacts, so i arranged the cards to get around this.
In Future is will replace them.
The RTC is reworked using a CR2032 on Top of the Benchmarq RTC. (No Photo currently)
The PC-Speaker on the Lanner Singleboard Computer was missing, soldered new one.
Looks like last Owner was too lazy to set the Watchdog Jumper to off.
Watchdog beeps when System has no external Activity (Network, RS232, LPT...) so he just forced it off the Board.

Maybe i this thing ? but i have currently no time to continue my work 😒 i need to focus more on just one thing.

And another Slot with a SCSI Card and External CD-Rom Drive ?

i first need to fix Contacts on the Backplane.

i play Ultima Underworld on it currently, if i have some time spare.
