Title: Falcon's IDE.
Post by Christos on 18.12.07 at 08:50:45
How does one mount it on the shielding? I know that someone's done it :P. Do I need to use some insulator tape? At what angle is it placed? thanks :)

Hmmm, the master who you mention did that to the drive of one of my Falcons, but this was done last summer, so I can't remember 100%. I think it was screwed kind of diagonally on the shielding, no insulation or anything afaicr. You have to ask the master himself though, or bug me to take a pic with my crappy cellphone camera :)

I am sure the master will address this issue ASAP. However you can consider yourself bugged ;).

OK.

1) Remove the RF shield
2) Remove the speaker from its clamp
3) Bend the shielding that the speaker clamped into so that from the underside it is flat
4) Align the HD upside down onto the shielding and scew it diagonally I think either one or two screw rows so that the diagonal opposite holes align to the shielding
5) screw it in, plug the cable in (Needs a longer IDE cable as you have to "twist" it to get it the right way up again)
6) Turn on the falcon and go ahhh blisss... no speaker bleeping and a HD :-)

And HD close up. I think I'll leave my falcon like that. Looks better ;)
