Naomi Netboot

New Project to work on alongside the Naomi Universal Cabinet restoration.

Just received a Netboot Dimm module. Been looking for this for a while now.

This will allow the Naomi to boot game data from a network computer. My plan is to use a Raspberry Pi to transfer data.

Still need a few more parts:

  • Decrypted security key for the Dimm
  • Naomi BIOS compatible with the DIMM
  • Raspberry Pi and LCD display for data loading

I’m also going to do a battery capacitor replacement on the motherboard first, as they leak over time eventually killing the board.
