  • M10000 vs MII10000 for the c134

    on mp3cars.com if you buy it, it gives you the M10000 motherboard, however i was looking at the MII10000 motherboard, mostly because it had the compact flash capability, would the MII work with it as well? or is it just the M10000?

    i think the MII is too big because of the added CF/PCMCIA readers. BTW, you do know that the CF slot is not an IDE slot, right? Just in case you were thinking of using it for booting XP it's not possible.

      Is there anyway to boot through CF on the M10000 then? do they make CF's that connect to IDE? and i can use that instead of an HD and add an external HD?

          Have a general question....wouldnt booting from a CF card not be slow using the XP environment after Booting for running software etc?

            using a fast CF card you can boot very quickly. i've been using one and I'm very happy with it.

              I have an MII12000 with a c134, you'd have to modify the case to get the CF reader in there, or at least relocate where the HD is mounted. Oh, and do yourself a favor, and get low-prof memory!

                I also had a c134 thinking its 1 DIN. Its NOT! (Tooooo lenghty). Since then I decided that I had to do my own 1 True Single-DIN aluminium case! If you remove the CF/PCMCIA of the MII it might fit, but thats not an option I guess!

                  aside from the CF/PCMCIIA slot, what are the other major differences in the two mobo's.

                  and...if i get a CF adapter to attach it to IDE, would that work? and then have an external HD for file storage?

                    Quick, ugly hack, but you have to cut up the back of it. And the HD can't be mounted in the regular place, I mounted it where the CD/DVD player should go. But it's really tight, I had to remove the extra fan as well, but it doesn't overheat...

                      That will be fine, just remember that CF cards have limited write cycles. You need to use EWF or similar.

                          the forum. It is covered in depth.
                          Basicly, it is to write protect your windows drive (in this case, the CF card)
