I had a couple of folks ask about my experience with Win32DiskImager and Tim's file. Here is the process I used...
1. Purchase an 8GB SDCARD, Ideally a Class 10. Stern uses ADATA MLC cards in August, but any name brand should be fine.
2. Send Tim an email using Pinside contact email and he will send you the link
3. Download the file. It is a single ~8GB file, so make sure you have the space
4. Download Win32DiskImager from the Internet. You can get it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/
5. Install Win32DiskImager
6. Insert SDCARD into your PC using a USB-Card reader, ideally a USB3 slot is used. NOTE WHICH DRIVE LETTER IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE NEW CARD
7. Start Win32DiskImager and on the right side of the screen, select the Drive Letter of the new USB card
8. On the left side of Win32DiskImager, select Tim's 8GB file
9. Hit the Start button on Win32DiskImager and it will take a few minutes.
10. You should get SUCCESS message.
11. PULL AC POWER PLUG out of wall.
12. Open the backbox up, carefully moving the glass, and notice the main CPU module in the center. There is an SDCARD slot on the top right surface.
13. Apply slight pressure downward on the CARD that is already installed, and it will spring out. Pull out and save this card!!!! It is your safety net and will likely want to stay with the machine along with the manual.
14. Put the newly created CARD in the slot, and press downward IN until it clicks.
15. Close backbox.
16. Plug power in and boot machine. When you see the JP logo, you can confirm you did it correctly.
