Is there anyway you would figure out what wire goes to what pin in the original proprietary pinout and just solder them to the correct wires on a new case and everything would work properly? Power switch USB all that. Just curious if anyone has ever done it that way.
Dell doesn't publish those pinouts, and they change them quite often from one system to the next. if you get the fornt I/O board and cable you can rpobably figure it out. Or just stick the board in an empty drive bay and use it like that.
