FYI to anyone out there still x48'ing (or thinking about one). It turns out, the way to go is to ditch that old iWill board altogether if you have a gen1 x48. If you don't mind getting out the Dremel, you can put in an Atom proc mini-ITX motherboard that's readily available from ebay, amazon, etc, and can load the Tascam x48mkII restore CD on it and with a little post load driver installs, it will work great! (make sure to go into mobo BIOS and set SATA port mode to IDE and not AHCI for doing the initial Tascam OS load - if you want, it is possible to change to AHCI post install by following standard procedures to change a Windows install from IDE to AHCI, but Tascam OS load won't work if set to AHCI) I've tested on both of these boards: Intel D2550MUD2 Intel D525MW I'm going with the D2550 as that is newer generation Atom and has DVI video port. You can also add a mini pci-e USB 3.0 card to it and either mount USB 3.0 connectors where the firewire ports were on the back or get a USB 3.0 port addon to put in place of the DVD drive. I've done a ton of mods now to my gen1 x48 that I picked up for $400 with a blown iwill motherboard. It is now running mkII install, reports as mkII, and is completely SILENT. One other benefit of the Atom motherboard: passive heatsink cooling and very low wattage/heat cpu. I've changed the power supply to one that only runs the fan when temp or load is high (though load never gets high enough with the Atom board, so it will only run fan if temp of the PSU goes up). As far as I can tell, the system would do fine with no fans running, but I have added a couple low RPM fans (these are silent at low rpm) with a fan controller/USB 3 port device in the 5.25 drive bay. I did quite a lot of work on mods to the case, but now it's mkII, silent, USB 3.0, dual SSD, running on solid motherboard and PSU, and also can turn up fans if I were to be using the x48 in the field and concerned about ambient temps. If anyone is interested in details or pics, let me know.
