It actually boots

I bought a VIA Epia M10000 Mini-ITX motherboard, added a bit of RAM and threw it in a Venus case. I’d been told it didn’t run BeOS at all, but I had to try it anyways… And it boots! It uses VESA graphics, I think, but it seems decent enough. It doesn’t recognise the networking interface though, much less the audio, but I’ve got PCI replacements for those and my case will take two PCI cards if I get a riser which I just might. It’s lovely. Ever so lovely.


If I remember correctly, Rudolf’s Via Unichrome driver works with the graphics chips in the Via miniITX boards.

It seems I have been misled? There should be networking drivers, too. Joy!
