    More pics! Compare to OEM, about 1/2" longer, should not be an issue based on measurements. Threw win7 on the ssd to test everything. CPU hovered around 80* f during install.

    The win7 I installed was from a USB stick that I didn't enter a serial. I just put it on there to test all the hardware and it all works perfect, including the touchscreen that worked native with win7 drivers. Power supply works well, and controls the mobo with ignition status as it should. All in all project is wrapping up with no problems.

    You out did yourself Joe. Yes it's a little longer than the OEM but it should fit.

    Did you test the Bluetooth/wifi card?

    I just sent you two emails; respond as soon as you can.

    Thanks!!

    Ill check my emails. Did a little information video about the power supply timing and hookup. All hardware tested ok in windows 7. Touchscreen drivers were a little weird but I assume the actual drivers are a bit better than the win7 "one size fits all" drivers.

    Tiny win7 installed and running. This is a nice modern slim os. Installed egalax touchscreen drivers and they work perfect. About ready to package this up and ship it back to you Greg

    Now that looks sweet! How much faster was the boot time with the tiny7?

    Just times it at 22 seconds from the bios splash to the desktop. Gotta love SSD.

    If you go into BIOS, there is a page that has fast boot settings to setup, and in the boot menu page disable boot from usb or any other sources, you can get it down to 10 seconds into windows.

    Thanks for the tip rray.

    So i'm having the same strange touchscreen issues, where it works perfect after installation , then after a couple boots it starts acting funny, in the end getting stuck in a corner or not responding. It did it first with the OEM full windows7 drivers, then on tiny7 I used egalax drivers. During both installs everything is good, works perfect. After a couple boot cycles, starts going weird. Wonder if the screen controller does not like the dcdc-200? I took a video of touch screen yesterday. Today wanted to give one last boot before packaging and the touchscreen goes wild again. Very odd problem. Software shows the controller there and active. Wanted to give you a heads up Greg.
