Description

A 2000/2001 era machine (no clear date on the mainboard or machine, but the PSU was manufactured week 50 of 2000).

Picked up as a retro computer restoration / tinkering project. The machine arrived in a fairly grimy state and required some cleaning before it was put in use. The BIOS was upgraded from version 1.03 to 1.13.

The machine was fitted with a Gotek Floppy Drive emulator. The Gotek can be set up by inserting an USB stick and holding both gotek buttons while the machine is turned on (this will automatically erase the USB stick).

The original LG GCE-8520B CD-R/RW which came with the machine was not functional. It was replaced with a used Emprex 1008IM CD/DVDRW drive.

Drivers and latest BIOS can be downloaded from fujitsu.com when searching for the mainboard "D1214" and video drivers can be downloaded from matrox.com.
