Compaq Evo T30


The Compaq Evo T30 is a thin client. One day, while shopping at Weird Stuff, I happened to pick up about 10 of these for a great price. About half didn't boot, but I think this is because they don't have a plugin memory card. My goal is to install Linux on them.

The ones I have don't appear to be a standard version:

  • Model No.: T30
  • Part No.: 238622-001
  • Spare No.: 292238-001
  • Date Manufactured: November 2002

From powering up into the OS:

  • RAM: 64MB
  • Flash Memory, Device 1: 32MB


Power Up Sequence

Using a 12V power supply, 500mA is drawn after applying power. The LED is orange and will flash once before turning off. After a short period, the LED turns off and current draw drops to 300mA. Pressing the button for about 3 seconds will make the LED green and will return the current draw to 500mA.
