U35-U36 Supports 4MB or 16MB 70ns and 80ns Industry standard SIMMs. Up to 32MB memory support (31MB addressable)

006 Error
 006 error occurs after adding memory to an 8570 with either of the following system board upgrades installed:
                     - 486DX 33MHz, Option P/N70G8988
                     - 486BL2 66MHz, Option P/N32G3300
The 8570 upgrade only supports 4MB and 16MB Industry Standard Memory Simms.  Memory transferred from the previously installed system board will not function on the upgrade boards.
   IBM offers a 4MB Industry Standard Simm, Feature Code 7634, Option P/N92G7201 and a 16MB Industry Standard Simm, Feature Code 2011, Option P/N92G7204 or P/N60G1622. Memory must be identical in size and speed if using both memory SIMM sockets.
   Rich Wolos grabbed a 16MB parity from his Lacuna 77 and it worked fine.

Just to Show this Means Business

   BTW I also tried to upgrade the board's 8 megs of RAM (two 4 meg modules are on it already) with the two IBM 8 meg 70ns true parity simms and it gave me the 006 error.

Memory Expansion Adapters Supported
   The following  memory adapters are supported:
o   2-8MB 80386 Memory Expansion Option (#5211, 6450605)
o   Enhanced 80386 Memory Expansion Option 2MB Kit (#3077, 34F3077)
o   Enhanced 80386 Memory Expansion Option 4MB Kit (#3011, 34F3011)
       The channel memory adapter PS/2 80386 Memory Expansion Option (6450367) is not supported on the Model 70 planar upgrades.

Now if this was understandable...

U100 5v 17x17 486 socket, however, it has the outline (and 19x19 array!) of a ZIF. POD hack? I have popped in a 486DX4-75 and it ran fine.
   The HMM calls this a "P23T Upgrade connectors" 
U110 Outline for two different flat packs. My guess- 486SLC or 486SX.
J10 Power header for IDE drive (YES!!!). From left to right (power connector edgecard towards CPU) +5v, 12V, GND
U25, U27 Outlines for Video DRAM

Two Planar Upgrades Available
      Two microprocessor types were available The 486DX-33 includes an integrated memory cache controller and Math Co-Processor support.  The clock speed operates at 33MHz for the internal and external operations. 
   The IBM 486 BL2-66 includes an internal memory cache controller and 16KB memory cache.  The clock speed operates at 66MHz for the internal operations and 33MHz for external operations.
   (Ed. Where do they derive the 33MHz from? I saw NO 66 or 33MHz osc..)

Alfred Arnold finally can't stand it and he blurts out:
   You asked where the 33MHz clock is coming from.  I am quite sure they come out of U113.  This is a so-called 'clock synthesizer' chip that typically gets a 14.31818 MHz clock (Y1) as input and uses programmable frequency dividers and multipliers to generate arbitrary output clock frequencies (J13 might be a jumper to select between two frequencies, haven't checked that so far).  Such synthesisers first became popular with Super VGA boards since they needed a lot of different clocks for the different resolutions and you were able to replace half a dozen discrete oscillators with one crystal and such a synthesizer chip.  These days, they're a standard component on every PCI man board.

32 Bit Mode under W95
From Greg Frantz
 I finally got in front of one of the machines.  Here is what I manually added to get the system working.

Standard IDE/ESDI Hard Disk Controller (Change to manual settings)
Basic Config 0
I/O 01F0-01F7
I/O 03F6-03F6
IRQ 14

   This will enable the HDD in 32-bit mode and has also allowed me to use a 4x 
Toshiba CD-ROM.  To get the floppy to work, install the Standard Floppy 
Disk Controller after getting the HDD working.  The other thing to note is that the floppy had to be a sony for me to get it working.

SVGA video up to 1024 x 768 pixels (1MB video memory standard)

W95 Experiences
Al Brandt sez:
    I loaded mine up with Windows 95 and with the Cirrus Logic video, you can get up to 800x600 at 16-bit color. I don't know if the W95 driver does that, but I know that it at least does 640x480 at 16-bit.
