The motherboard has arrived, but it's currently held hostage by the customs authorities. It's going to take some time to sort this out.

edit: It looks like customs duty will be around €16 at minimum. I hope they will accept it as a gift, because it was in fact a gift Otherwise I might have to pay more, up to €77

It wasn't shipped as a gift, and I had to provide an invoice of the transaction.

If you just got the mb and need other parts, I could help you out. Just tell me what is missing.

Bye

Thanks, but fortunately I was able to recycle most stuff from an old PC (case, HDD, PSU, DVD burner). Now I'm at the mercy of NAV :(

In the end I had to pay €90 (!) customs fee, and the motherboard doesn't work. No picture, and it doesn't turn on the keyboard either. Sad
edit: Ok, scratch the last part. After reseating everything for the second time, the openfirmware prompt appeared... man, this really surprised me. I'm installing AmigaOS4 right now. This €90 fee has really hit me hard tough... If anyone can spare a few coins, please throw them in my way. You won't regret it

Pegasos dont turn on if the Keyboard and Mouse isnt attached or when NVRAM isnt flushed .
Another important thing is better you clean the Cpu fan just because it is the cause of pegaos2 dead cpu socket if it not working good.

Donated 25 euro too. Man it's the first time I donated to an AROS developer. Do everything possible so that it's not the last

Decided to follow your good example and donate 25 EUR as well. Although I'm not that interested in games, BSzili and this effort are good for our community, thank you BSzili (and kas1e for the initiative)!

I donated directly via the PayPal Donate button on BSzili's page, hope that is the correct way.

Best regards,

Niels

Yes, that is the correct way. Thanks to you, and the others who have donated, we are already at €75, wow! I also want to stress that I don't limit myself to games only, I already have programs, like Transmission on my TODO list.
I couldn't install OS4 yet, because the HDD write errors. I suspect the 5V rail in the PSU to be the culprit, because the USB devices act rather flaky too, and the HDD worked perfectly in a different machine.

It can be the SATA cable. I had such issues in the past.

It's really not the PSU, the 5V rail is just below 5.25V, which is within the specs. I'm using a PATA HDD, and those 80 wire cables are much more frail than the SATA ones. I'll try to replace it, but I'm pretty sure I used the same cable to test the HDD with my PC.

Well, I'm better off than I was yesterday, thanks to everyone! I just wish I could get a working OS4 install already. The replaced cable helped a bit, but I still can't boot the installed system. The bootloader shows the partition, but when I try to boot from it I only get an AmigaDOS shell. I can browse the installed partition from the CD just fine.

edit: I take it back, I still get write errors with the replaced cable. Mind you it's a brand new one, I never used it before.
