Repurposing Fiery E-82 Color Controller


Well-known member
We had a Fiery E-82 Color Controller for a digital press that we upgraded and the new press came with an E-83. They were going to just recycle the E-82 but I carted it upstairs because I figured, "Gee whiz, it's got two quad-core processors" and it might make a nice internal web server or something.

Obviously it's very custom and has a bunch of deep modifications made to Windows 7 but I like a challenge and want to convert it into a useable machine again. The Windows 10 installer fails due to a driver issue (surprise surprise) and rolls back to Windows 7 every time. I try to play dirty and insert a USB to boot off of so I can wipe the drives but I can't even get the BIOS settings to load! In fact, I can't even figure out how to get into the case! I don't really know how these are set up configuration-wise so I kind of feel like a caveman banging it with a club trying to get Windows 10 on it.

Has anyone had any luck tinkering with these?

I'm pretty sure the front and top plastic housing pops off, and there's just one single cable connecting the top display/board. I'm guessing you may have access to side panels from there. I'm willing to bet EFI has a there, and you may be pretty limited due to whatever chipsets they have on the MoBo.
