A how too on installing CE2 on the Velo 1, not sure if this is the right place for the video!?
Either way HPCfactor gets a mention ;-)

Excellent video as always Huw, lots of useful tips and info in there. I never realised it was so fiddly. I'm used to the hp world where you just turn it off shove the ROM in and turn it on. There's none of this PSU fiddling or software installation.

Have you tried forcing the COM port speed to 56k or 115k, I assume it is only defaulting to 19.2K?

Glad you found H/PC:Update, fyi, you cannot hotlink into the Velo files list from the video description into H/PC:U as it uses transitory storage on the server to load your session due to the way it is written. Just linking directly to https://www.hpcfactor.com/support/update/ would prevent the red error banner from appearing

Looking forward to the side-by-side!

Thanks for the mention

Yeah I had an MC12 and changing the OS was super easy, ROM out... ROM in... reboot restore...

That is why I thought it worth the video as if you are missing the guide it'd be super frustrating trying to install the new OS! The need for the PSU still baffles me but presumably the boffins at Philips had their reasons!

I've updated the link, thank you for that :-)

So forcing the COM speed? How would I do that? The Velo only has a 19.2K option which is so damn slow...

There will obviously be another mention in the side by side review, honestly I think anyone with a HPC and now PSION or HPC style DOS machine should be on here as its a great resource.
