Dvd is now installed and working . It is a sata dvd so better than the ide one it replaces.
Also changed the firmware from v18 to v23 , which is ok but now the way to install bm2lts has changed because the instructions are different; so now i will download the v18e firmware and install that onto the usb and into bios. Hopefully will get back the old style of installing bm2lts to try out and modify the kernel of v2.95.
I am pleased with v2.90 but just would like to see if the front panel lcd can work.
Ok, many thanks again.
