    Sent you a Pm. Got a spare caddy. Got other random parts as well. Think i have a spare camera for a U1 as well. Had thought about trying the H2 updated camera software on the U1 Mk2 of mine like Toughbook did on a H1 or a 19 a few years ago for better camera control on the U1. I know you are trying to get it to a external camera. You can also use the factory camera flash as a flashlight.

    Internal camera/ flashlight would be really handy.
    On my 19 or 31, I used the newer software package. Think it was the 31.

    I'm using the 19 Mk8 Win10 package on a 19 Mk7 with Win8.1, works fine.

    Some quick LIVE USB OS tests. These ran on it. Distro needs to run on i(x)86 not just x86 or 32 bit.
    I just tested for boot/load, mouse/touchscreen and a quick opinion on looks and ease of use.
    I tested nothing else.

    These booted and loaded
    Pear OS 8--Identical to Apple/Mac OS X. Beautiful. Easy to use with touchscreen. More icons than menus.
    Pearl OS 3.5- Looks very nice- lots of included software. Looks very similar to OSX
    Antix 17 i386--probably 2nd fast--
    Porteus LXDE 4.0 i586--3rd fastest --top taskbar--sightly difficult to find things
    Porteus MATE 4.0 i586--fastest to load --bottom taskbar--easy to find things
    Zorin-OS-12 4-Lite---Boots and works. Probably the slowest load time. Shows the battery level of my wireless mouse!
    MX 17 i386---Medium load time--looks ok. Side taskbar is not really a favorite of mine.
    Peppermint 9 i386--Looks ok, medium load time- Shut down button did not work.

    The touchscreen did work but the calibration was way off on the edges of the screen. I used a usb mouse. This seemed to be on all distros.

    These did not load on U1.
    Puppy Linux TAHR
    Deepin 15

    PearOS 9.3

    I guess to be fair I need to boot my live Windows usb stick also.
    I know I have live Win 7. Not sure if I have live Win 10.

    Ubuntu 18.04 has this problem, but 16.04 the touchscreen worked and calibrated perfectly. Possibly something in new kernel modules?

    Interesting.
    I won't make any real judgement until I actually install them on the SSD.
    A live usb may not be exact on small details such as calibration.
