Please read the following cautions before upgrading any Netbook Pro:

Please read the following cautions before upgrading any Netbook Pro:

1) Upgrading Netbook Pro will require re-installation of all
applications presently on the unit.

2) All settings will have to be reconfigured.

3) Flash Disk Contents will be preserved over an upgrade, but it is
still recommended that the
Flash Disk contents are backed up before proceeding.

4) Profiles created by Total Recall before upgrade, will not be
restorable after upgrade.

5) If you are using synchronized folders through ActiveSync,
synchronize before upgrade.
ActiveSync partnerships will be removed from the Netbook by the
upgrade. Delete such partnerships also from the Desktop.

6) OnSchedule Sync partnerships with PocketOnSchedule will still exist,
if the device name matches, but they will have to be reset.
(In OnScheduleSync, select Folders, options, reset.) Synchronize
databases before upgrading to avoid data loss.

7) The versions of BooSt and PCon in this package (-311) fix a problem
which previously might have prevented the PCon upgrade from
completing successfully. BOOST MUST BE UPGRADED FIRST.
The upgrade script included ensures that BooSt will be upgraded
first, but only if the BooSt image is on the memory card. Please be
sure to unzip all files to the memory card as instructed.

Upgrade Procedure:
-----------------

1) Unzip all files with a .img extension to a CF, SD or MMC memory
card. The card may be FAT-12 or FAT-16, but not FAT-32.

2) Remove any Total Recall profiles from the card, or change their .pfl
extensions.

3) Remove or rename any file on the card named nbkproOS.img.

4) Disconnect any cables between Netbook and PC, and open the case.

5) Remove all CF, SD/MMC and PC cards.

6) Ensure that the main battery is well charged, or connect the AC
power.

7) (Optional) By connecting a serial ActiveSync cable between the
serial port, and a PC running terminal emulation at 115.2 Kbps, log
the upgrade progress and results.

7) Get the unit into the BooST menu as follows:

Reset it with a paper clip or similar blunt tool.
(The reset switch is beneath the small hole to the right of the
right hand shift key.)

Turn on the unit while holding down “control D”

8) Wait for the Netbook to boot into the BooST menu.

9) Insert the memory card.

The script should run, load the necessary files, run a flash memory ecc
check and cold start WinCE.
Do not disturb the Netbook while this is taking place. It should
restart automatically and boot into CE.

10) In the Control Panel - System - Properties tab, check that the
reported date codes for WinCE, BooST and PCon match those in the
table above.

This completes the upgrade.

Note that except for Total Recall profiles (.pfl) it is not good
practice to leave files on a storage card in the Netbook Pro, that
might be automatically loaded should the unit cold start.
This includes files named
nbkproOS.img
nbkproBT.img, and
nbkpro.img

Windows CE Compatibility:
Windows CE .net 4.20
