Swapping A7000 motherboard for an A7000+ motherboard

Swapping A7000 motherboard for an A7000+ motherboard

Post by NJSMaso » Sun, 05 Aug 2007 19:47:38


I have acquired an A7000+ motherboard - can I simply remove the
existing motherboard from my A7000 and put the new motherboard in?
Will the new A7000+ motherboard work with my existing power supply,
floppy drive and so forth?

Also, will the existing A7000 RAM work with the A7000+ motherboard? I
believe that the A7000+ uses faster memory, so I'm guessing it
probably won't work.

Many thanks in advance,
Nick.

Yes. It's a straight swap, all the connections are the same.

If you've been using the original RO 3.6 Boot you should change this to the
UniBoot.


The A7000+ needs EDO RAM but it's possible that the RAM you have in your
A7000 may already be EDO since it's normally cheaper than FP and works just
as well in an A7000
