  1. Make a bootable USB drive using HP Drive Key Boot Utility (via bootdisk.com Method 2)
  2. Format the flash disk in the device.
  3. Make the flash disk in the device bootable using MBRTool (This is necessary if you installed GRUB on the disk. The MBR needs to be overwritten)
  4. From the Win CE installation folder, from drive:\<path to wince installation>\PLATFORM\CEPC\SRC\BOOTLOADER\DOS\BOOTDISKcopy all files and paste it to the flash disk in the device (These files always comes with Win CE installation)
  5. Put your build of Win CE - EBOOT.BIN in the flash disk on the device (This will be your custom Win CE image)
  6. Remove the USB drive, and boot the device. Your new build of Win CE should boot up.

Reset Neoware 608 CE password.


Neoware was acquired by HP in 2007 and they seem to have destroyed all Neoware references. That product was end of service in January 09. Their transition rules are at http://www.hp.com/sbso/busproducts_thinclient-HP-neoware-thinclient-migration.pdf, and the old manuals are at http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.neoware.com/support/documentation/manuals.html. HP also has manuals at http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_lang=en&h_cc=us&cc=us&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_pagetype=s-001&h_query=thin+client, ans specifically http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_lang=en&h_cc=us&cc=us&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_pagetype=s-001&h_query=thin+client looks promising.

I have CA5 Model , but my thin client power supply


you just need to replace a few capacitors, most likely the two where it says C9 on the board. these can be picked up online for very cheap!!

see my posting at thelautus forum:http://www.thelautus.com/forum/default.aspx?g=posts&t=2

if you need some diagrams just let me know.

Low Disk space on Neoware e140 (Windows XP Embedded)


Yes, you can disable this message via the registry editor.

Click start, then Run. In the boxy type regedit. Press enter. (In Vista, click start, then in the search box, type regedit)

Navigate to the folder HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer

Click on NoLowDiskSpaceChecks and change the value from 0 to 1. If the entry doesn't exist, click on new DWORD value, type in NoLowDiskSpaceChecks and enter 1.

Navigate to the folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer and do the same thing there.

Exit out of the registry. Your computer may need to be rebooted in order for the changes to take effect.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya.

Neoware thin client password recovery Windows CE


OK first off I don't know anything about this device, But I can tell you most OS level passwords I have dealt with are stored in the OS by way of a battery on the main board. If you open the unit and remove the battery and wait about 15 minutes, then reinstall the battery and close everything back up. Then turn it on and see what you get.
Has worked for me in the past On laptops.
You may have to try and leave the battery out overnight and then try it.

Neoware ca5


True, even if you reflash the system to bring it to a fresh state, it will still need a server to do anything reasonable.

Head over to http://www.neowareftp.com/ and click on the "Tech Support" link. A password dialog box will show up: [since it may violate TOS here I won't post that info, but it's readily available on the web.] Once in, click on the FlashRecovery link, then pick the flash that relates to your machine - CA5's are usually the CE versions. Download the file.

Now, this program will work on XP systems. Install the program and follow the directions. You'll need either a cheap hub, switch, or a simple crossover ethernet cable. Hook the thin client to one end, your PC to the other, run the tftpd32 program as described in the documentation, set up the thin client per documentation.

If all is done right, your thin client will grab an ip address from the tftpd32 program and you'll see the reflash menu. Pick the number corresponding to the proper reflash, and watch the machines do the rest.

When it's done, you'll have a pristine OS on your device.

now understand, these are made primarily for accessing terminal servers in businesses or schools or hospitals, so it may be useless unless you just want to do some primative web surfing (the CE version has an embedded version of IE5, no java, no flash, and probably no room to put it on that 16meg flash disk.)

But if you buy these devices for a accessing terminal servers, this will give you a clean client.

Upgrade 238622-001, Compaq Evo T30 Thin Client 300Mhz 32MB Flash/64MB/Win CE NET/IE 5.5 w/o


You need to replace the 2mbit bios chip used by the WinCE Evo with the 4mbit one used by the NTe and XPe Evo, then you need an add on flash module, since the onboard flash is too small. After that, just find the OS file and flash away. You can find the OS files and a utility to flash from the HP support site. You'll need a crossover ethernet cable, not a patch cable, to do the flash.
