    Just bought a very cheap CF-19 Mk5, and you can guess why it was so cheap: BIOS passworded in every way possible.

    Can I just swap in a 19 Mk6 board from eBay and call it a day or do I really need a Mk5 board?

    Pretty sure mk6 n later uses versapad. Motherboard swap makes the touchpad work upside down n backwards. Something else is different. Cant recall at the moment.

    Have you tested the boot order yet? How about Wifi? I got lucky on one Mk3 i got in real rough shape. Loaded the image on another unit and everything worked fine.

    I ended up selling it, couldn't be arsed to buy every part.

    It asked for a password all the time, even with a USB stick in it.
