Introduction: Fatting Up a Thin Client
I had acess to some Thin clients so I decide to fatting up one for my personal use.
Step 1: First I Open It Up.
Removed the 2 rear screws from the HP T5000 and pulled all the clip panels off. The cage is a metal shield just like your destops.
Step 2: Wireless
Right on top under the cage was the wireless Cisco card this works really well. it plugs into a right angel riser PCI card.
Step 3: 44 Pin Header
Ths is wear the 64 mb Win XP embeded was pluged in. I fould an old laptop and pulled the HDD + the cable. I then pluged it in.
Step 4: Connected
This is with the riser card and wireless installed with the hard drive.
Step 5: Final Assembly
Fold hard drive over cable to ensure hard drive doesn't short out against riser assembly or wireless card.
Step 6: Loaded XP
Loaded XP via USB CD ROM.
Step 7: XP Loaded
The system did not require any additional drivers after SP3.
