Intel Atom PICO ITX runs 2008.11 100a, Poulsbo chipset, no fans

Hi All,

Finally got around to doing a test install on the IGoLogic Intel Atom PICO ITX.

It has the Intel Poulsbo chipset. 1.1Ghz processor. Realtek Gigabit Ethernet, HD Audio.

Everything is working of the 2008.11 100a cd, except the USB for keyboard and mouse.

Something had to not work or it would not be any fun :-)

As I don't have a case around it, it's just on the workbench, I'm trying to work out how to power a 2.5" SATA drive so I can do a full install.

Good job I had a PS/2 keyboard and mouse laying around.

email me if you need more info.
Also, how much are these MB's and can you get them with two SATA ports.. ?

Please keep up the good work on the Acer Aspire One. I still want to get it and I am waitting for fully support..

Regards,
Edward.

Hi,

You can contact IGoLogic for pricing, http://www.igologic.com

You can ask them about the sata port issue.

Thanks
Dave

The small white 2-pin connector directly beneath the sata data connection is the sata power connection. Pin 1 is +5V, pin 2 is GND.

Thanks, I'll try that when I get back to the lab.

I've seen in several places that the Poulsbo chipset has no SATA, only PATA controller. How can you connect that SATA drive then?

Hi,

Good question, currently I don't, I'm running of the CF.

I'm currently working on getting it onto the network so our engineering team can take a look at it.

OpenSolaris is seeing the controller, it's just getting a drive not ready right now.

I'm quite excited by this - the US15W aka Poulsbo chipset is meant to solve the power-hungry nature of the typical atom cpu's support chipset.

Are you able to take any power measurements for us?

thanks!

Hi, I'm trying to book OpenSolaris on this computer: http://www.portwell.com/products/detail.asp?CUSTCHAR1=WEBS-1010

I'm having similar trouble with the USB keyboard/mouse. Wonder if it's an Atom-based chipset problem. Did you have any luck solving this problem? Unfortunately, the computer doesn't have a PS/2 port, so that isn't an option. My only alternative is to somehow run the installer over SSH (but I can't find the username/password for live CD).

Hi Poojan,

Try putting a usb hub between the system and usb keyboard / mouse.

I had this usb problems on another Intel Atom system.
