Disregard!

It was a bad RAM chip.  Tested the RAM, the 2nd chip failed.  Pulled it out, runs better than ever.

Hi everyone.  I just recently got a PGA Golf that was converted to a SSB and looking for a different harddrive.  Game will start to boot but gets hung up on message, "Ok, booting the kernel".

The cabinet may be PGA but are you expecting it to boot to SSB?

Yes, I believe it should boot to SSB.  I found the CDs on ebay (https://www.ebay.com/itm/254731543458) and hopefully they will help.

If youíre expecting and wanting it to boot to SSB, then this is the wrong thread. You need to find one for SSB.

Thanks that makes sense. 

If I want to switch it back to PGA Tour, what would I need?

Did the cabinet come with a computer? If so, please post pictures.

Yes, it did.  I believe it's a NB32-SL motherboard with V9280 video card.

I believe you can install PGA onto that computer if you have the system recovery disc and game discs but you donít have the most important component in that computer which is required for PGA - the Nytric card.

Without the nytric card, PGA will not run. It connects the controls to the computer and PGA does a check for this nytric before it will allow the game to run.

I do have the Nytric card.  I removed it when I was cleaning out the computer.

As long as itís the PGA wire harness, I think youíre good to convert it back to PGA - assuming you have the discs and dongle.
If you donít, send me a message.

New to the Global VR community and I've read a lot of the notes on here to start my journey. I just need a little help ...

I bought a Gx620 tower to replace the non working set up. However, I cannot get a network connection with XP embedded so that I can download the drivers for the new Geforce7200 I added.

Ideas on how to work through this?

Also, how to I sign up for the FB group. It seems to be hidden ....

TBH, i wouldn't just cruise a windows XPe willy nilly on the internet... it's sadly outdated browsers won't properly connect to most websites without a fight... and if you manage to get it going... it's fairly easy to pick up a virus from a simple malformed ad on a website due to the probably 1000's of security holes that have been patched since XPe's release.

i suggest you hit up the dell website and nvidia with your main rig and plunk in the models and rip all the installs you need onto a USB stick since it looks like you have support for USB already in the device manager. this will probably be your safest option given what you will be able to do with XPe.

Hey there, Dongle Dave.
The PGA FB page is for online players. It is not a troubleshooting site.

LilíShawn gave the best answer to your question.

Hoping someone smarter than me has an easy fix for this -- Iím having an issue with my PGA Tour Team Challenge where the [Turn Left] button will not work.  Iíve been troubleshooting for several weeks and cannot fix it,.  Here are the details:

My pedestal has both a PC for PGA Tour TC and  Silver Strike Bowling 2009, I am switching the controls between them manually (no switcher)
SSB has no issues and all buttons are working, PGA TC was working fine for several months Ė I swapped out the old JAMMA harness from the arcade that was frayed and cut up with a brand new JAMMA and thatís when I ran into the issue with the Turn Left button for PGA
The pedestal control panel/trackball/buttons are using the Silver Strike panel from the arcade (along with original SSB PC inside the cab)
The PGA Tour is running on a Dell computer -- I have the Nytric card and Jamma to Nytric conversion connected, and this was 100% functional prior to changing the JAMMA (no longer have the original JAMMA)

I followed plans outlined in the Global VR conversion doc linked here:
https://service.globalvr.com/downloads/golf/Team_Challenge/040-0012-03_PGA_Conversion-Team_Chall-web.pdf

*I do not have a card reader, coin switch, speaker, or video connected from the system (audio and video come direct from the PC)

The new JAMMA Iím using is this one: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07S86558Y/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_0M23RDFVRG46CHHKVY3W?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

JAMMA connections I am using below:
#17 to START
#20 to SHOT TYPE
#21 to FLY OVER
#22 to TURN LEFT
#23 to TURN RIGHT
#28 has the GROUND daisy chain that connects to each button/switch

*Turn Left WORKS on Silver Strike, does not work for PGA*

Silver Strike Wiring Diagram linked here: https://amusement.itsgames.com/downloads/manuals/SSBC_Manual_1009.pdf

*The only difference I can see is that SSB doesnít use #1 and #2 for GROUND, only #27 and #28?*

Steps I have tried for troubleshooting:
-Swapped the Turn Left microswitch with a known-working switch
-Connected the Turn Left wire to other buttons that are working
-Changed out the JAMMA to Nytric conversion board for a new one
-Changed out the DB37 connector between the conversion board and Nytric with new one

I am thinking there is an issue with the grounding, but I canít figure it out, any ideas are appreciated!
