Just needs one last cleanup. It took more than a year to find the machine and all the parts, the keyboard arrived from Lithuania this morning. She works as good as new. I have Windows 10 installed on the internal SSD and…yes, I kept the old mechanical drive…that will run ZorinOS (it’s a Linux distro).
It’s still missing one screw on the bottom and I am planning on buying an LTE PC-CARD 3G modem from the mid 2000s…but they are impossible to find.
Another dream would a XIRCOM modem/ethernet with X-Jack….I will keep searching.
