    820-01041 A1990 15" 2018 - Screen and board question

    Hello,

    I have a board that came without the touch ID and if I fit it in a good known topcase, the fan spins only once and then the fan shuts down. CPU does seem to get warm. I was wondering if this was known behavior of the board that it may not boot without the touch id?

    Also, does anyone know if the A1707 (15" 2016-2017) LCD is compatible with A1990 (15" 2018)?

    Thanks!

    These ones need the T2 chip to be configured and paired to the logic board. Without that you're shot. Even the system won't start.

    and just to add no the 2018 isn't compatible with the earlier models
