I still have a few of these ready to go for KI or KI2. I use a laptop size
IDE/CF adapter so no extra power wiring is required:
Killer Instinct CompactFlash hard drive replacement
Is your Killer Instinct hard drive bad or do you simply want to replace it
with modern technology? A CompactFlash hard drive replacement will provide
you with worry free gaming for years and years. With no moving parts and
solid state flash memory this replacement kit will have your Killer Instinct
running perfectly with no worries about drive failure.
What you get:
A new CompactFlash card with a 100% working Killer Instinct v1.0 disk image
loaded onto it.
An IDE/CF adapter with the CompactFlash already installed.
A latest version boot rom chip (L 1.5d IDE).
Installation is simple. Simply unplug the Killer Instinct hard drive from
it's cable and plug in the IDE/CF adapter. Unlike full size disk
replacements no extra power wiring or hard drive adapters are needed.
Unplug the boot rom chip (U98 chip) and plug in it's replacement.
Each replacement is tested in a dedicated Killer Instinct game before
shipping. You will receive a brand new CompactFlash card instead of an old
refurbished hard drive.
Price: $50 + $5 shipping (USPS Priority Mail) anywhere in the USA.
International delivery for $10 (USPS Global Priority Mail - where available,
Killer Instinct 2 CompactFlash hard drive replacement also available ($10
more due to larger CompactFlash card size). Will work with original KI2
boards or KI to KI2 conversion kits.
