Ok, well, I have a nice looking PC20-III now (which is a PC10-III with a 20mb harddisk) but now I would like to set it up with a new harddisk.
Does anybody have the proper software (setup) tools to do this ?

I'd use Ontrack Diskmanager if you have access to such a bootdisk...there's always fdisk to use ;)

Ah yes Ontrack, that was a good tool yes.
Fdisk wont do much probably because the system needs to already have found a harddisk for fdisk to work. I think Ontrack was able to do much more than fdisk.

Is it an AT drive or an MFM? how does it differ in size regarding the original hdd?

That was the first PC I ever bought... good memories.

It has an 8-bit IDE Harddisk/controller (wish I kept it...)
