PCB compatibility

See HDDOracle.com for fzabkar's tutorials on analyzing ROMs. I have no idea why you are having problems finding the WWN value in ROM dumps. What are you using to read and save ROMs? To be clear, it's the ROM.bin file you are searching with a hex editor?

Dust particle Measuring Device

Measured my clean chamber today with my new-to-me Dylos D1100 Pro and the count reduces to zero within half a minute or so as it samples enough air to change the ambient reading.

WD- The screw is stuck

Perhaps keep the spindle from rotating by inserting Bent Snap Ring Pliers into holes where you managed to remove screws, then try with a better-fitting screwdriver.
