The case is made of Perspex sides.   The parts interlock together.  I put it together in a temporary mode by slotting it together and then applying tape across the edges.  I’ll glue it together later.
Note that the back is a thinner side and so the slots are smaller on that side.

Board assembly

I assembled it as follows: (As in the Image Album above).

  1. Peel off protective cover for inside sides.  I left the outside protected for now.
  2. Attach the top to the 3 sides other than the back
  3. Insert the long nylon screws through the base and place spaces inside on the screws.
  4. Place the board on the screws and position on top of the spaces.  Screw on and moderately tighten the nuts.
  5. Attach/insert any board additions, or hard drives/CF.
    • You might like to test the board now
  6. Attach the bottom to box.
  7. The space on the rear side for the lugs around the DB25 and VGA connectors is not enough.
    • Either remove the lugs or drill the slots for the  lugs in rear side bigger to fit
    • Attach the rear side and reattach the lugs if removed.

      PS: Making the slots might be best as the lugs might stick out to far for the connectors.

Testing the board

  1. Attach the keyboard, mouse and VGA
  2. Set the power adapter to 12V (Make doubly sure).  (Hard left).
  3. Turn on (I connect mine through a power switch) and press DEL
  4. BIOS should show.
  5. Have a look at the settings.
  6. Make sure that USB boot is top priority (We’ll need this for installation).
