    Yeah, I have a few boards on the shelf but none of them will work... I'll put a wanted ad on here, I'm looking for something pretty specific

    The really weird thing is the hard drive is recognized immediately by the bios. I tried a few different known good drives to see if it was something to do with the controller not liking the drive but nothing works. According to stason there aren't any jumpers that have anything to do with the ide settings aside from disabling it

    It worries me that it was a 20 pin apparently unlabeled IC package that fell off, because there's definitely a chance it's a GAL16v8 or other piece of programmable glue logic, in which case it could be for *anything*.

    Yeah, that IC that fell off is kind of worrying... I got the Dolch knowing it has issues and I had a hunch it was probably going to need a motherboard but I didn't realize any of the ones on my shelf would fit! I posted a wanted ad and I hope someone on here has what I need.
