System change….A4000T

I was lucky enough to have an A4000T fall in to my hands, so the A4000D is going away and the A4000T is taking it’s place.  Same layout but now I won’t have to worry about the ZorroII/III/Video cards I have as they will all fit in the chassis.  I’ve got everything moved over but it really doesn’t like my CF Card, SATA>IDE SSD and Slim DVD-RW drive with the 4-Way IDE add-on.  It also didn’t like booting off my CF Card configured with all the hardware configured (PicassoII, X-Surf100/RapidRoadUSB) but had no problems booting from my other CF Card with OS 3.9 and BB1&2 installed.  I need to get the A4000T layout of how I want to boot (CF Card or HD, IDE or SCSI, etc..) based on what I have and what will work.  The 4-Way IDE adapter is out…it may be due to the onboard IDE and SCSI controllers vs. the A4000D only having IDE.   I may even try A4000D Roms in the A4000T so as not to have it attempt to use the onboard SCSI (the WarpEngine has faster SCSI).

*EDIT* I found the trouble!  When removing the drive cage you have to disconnect the motherboard power connection, when checking issues I was having with the PicassoII I noticed only one of the connectors was connected.  I’m impressed the machine functioned as well as it did with only half of the power connections being made.  The 4-way now works and I have the slim DVD-RW/CF card working as before along with my SATA SSD drive.
