A little help if your SVI-738 upgrade failed.

Hi,
I recently upgraded my SVI-738 to MSX2 (changing the VRAM + ROMs)
I totally missed the part that the PCB was double sided and accidentally pulled off almost all pads on the upside of the PCB when I desoldered the RAM-chips and pulled them out rather violently (Yes, I know. Very stupid of me).

So I had to pay the price and make a lot of new patching on the underside instead. It works now, after a lot of extra work.
I just wanted to share my enhanced schematicspage that I used for reference, if anybody else should have any problems after replacing the VRAM-chips.

Good luck! :-)

I just discovered www.msx.pics, so I uploaded the images there instead. Here they are:

Wow, impressive fix! Reminds me of upgrading the CBM 4008 to 32kb on a 4-times drilled (at the factory, to prevent RAM upgrade) motherboard.
